There will be a white line picket in Dungiven on Friday, December 11, at 1pm in opposition to the ongoing bombing of Syria.

The protest will take place outside the Sinn Féin office.

“We have organised this picket to highlight the plight of innocent people across Syria and Palestine among other countries which are under bombardment,” said Sinn Fein Councillor Dermot Nicholl.

“These airstrikes are indiscriminate and do not differentiate between innocent civilians and those who wish to do harm.

“Anything which endangers innocent people cannot be allowed to happen. The human, social and economic destruction that these attacks will cause is shattering. Whenever political leaders contemplate aggressive military action, it is incumbent upon them, indeed, upon us all, to weigh the human consequences of these decisions.”
