City’s solidarity with Palestine

The Lancaster Palestine Solidarity Campaign held a successful event in support of the people of Gaza.

During the Remember the Dead; Remember the Living event, the names of the 2,100+ people killed last summer in Israel’s assault on Gaza were written on rolls of white fabric, which were then displayed at the Friends Meeting House while the names were read out aloud.

The group also collected £600 which will go entirely 
to Medical Aid for Palestinians.

The group was supported by sixth formers from Ripley St Thomas CE Academy, Lancaster Royal Grammar School, Lancaster Girls’ Grammar School and Queen Elizabeth School, Kirkby Lonsdale, who baked, played instruments and collected almost £150 in donations at an event they organised in Dalton Square.
