Cllr Áine Groogan sends a message of Solidarity to women in Palestine

Cllr Groogan said "This International Women’s Day, we stand in solidarity with the women of Palestine who continue to show unfathomable courage in the face of displacement, starvation, and violence."

"As we fight for our own reproductive justice; we remember that rates of miscarriage, maternal morbidity amongst Palestinian women are soaring. As we stand against violence against women, we remember that Palestinian women face missile strikes, unlawful detention and threats of sexual violence."

"As we call for opportunities for our girls, we remember that young girls in Palestine are taking up the mantle as journalists - bravely sharing their experiences with the world. The genocide in Palestine is an intersectional, feminist issue, and the Green Party in Northern Ireland stand with the women and people of Palestine today and every day."
