THE Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council has opened a Book of Solidarity for the People of Gaza and Palestine.
The book is available to sign in Derry’s Guildhall with a second open in Strabane’s Alley Theatre.
An online facility is available on the Council website – https://www.derrystrabane.com/BOS-Gaza-and-Palestine.
Encouraging people to sign the Book of Solidarity, Mayor Patricia Logue said it was an opportunity for the public to send messages and support to the beleaguered people of Palestine.
“I think it’s important that we all take time to consider what is happening in Palestine and in particular the children of Gaza and what they are going through.
“By making a Book of Solidarity available for signing we are allowing the local community to express their support to the people of Gaza, Palestine.
“Our city and district has already shown its support by attending rallies, vigils and fundraising events so this is another way we can show that we are thinking of them.”
