A crowd of around 300 people took part in a vigil and demonstration in Sligo last Saturday afternoon to protest against the Israeli action in Gaza.

The marchers which also expressed solidarity with the people of Palestine took a route through the city before a vigil was held at the GPO.

This was the second demonstration to be held in Sligo over the past couple of weeks to protest at the Israeli campaign in Gaza.

Other marches were also held around the country with the support of the Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign.
