A solidarity vigil for the people of Palestine will take place in Galway City tomorrow, organised by the Galway Palestine Solidarity Campaign.

The demonstration will take place at Eyre Square on Tuesday 10 October at 6.30pm.

Students will gather in the Quadrangle at University of Galway at 5:30pm before marching towards Eyre Square to show solidarity with the people of Gaza.

Hundreds of Palestinian and Israeli civilians have been killed since Saturday, and the Israeli government has ordered a ‘complete siege’ on the Gaza Strip, where 2 million civilians live, including a million children.

An emergency solidarity rally will also take place outside the Dáil this afternoon at 5.30pm.
