WE HAVE CHANGED
Derry Friends of Palestine was formed in 2008/9 during Cast Lead. In March 2012 the group changed in order to accommodate people who wished to work with us outside of Derry on a temporary basis under the name of “Irish Friends of Palestine” on specific projects or during delegations. We are still based in Derry. We are working to create cultural and humanitarian links, between “like” groups in Ireland and Gaza. We organise “Freedom & Friendship” delegations to Gaza on an annual basis, usually twice per year.
Our group aims to both create and fund projects or events in Ireland or Palestine, which will help the people of Palestine through either raising awareness of certain issues, making cultural links or humanitarian aid and assistance. We believe the people of Ireland can make a difference in the lives of people in Gaza.
Internationally we work very hard to spread the word of the plight and the suffering of Palestinians under occupation and the illegal siege and welcome associations with other worldwide groups. We do this by working with our own contacts inside Palestine, or by associating with other international groups.
