Wexford Sinn Féin have condemned the sabotage of the Irish ship to Gaza, the MV Saoirse. Ger Barron from New Ross was among those passengers on board the humanitarian mission to Gaza. Mr Barron is a former Sinn Féin election candidate and current member of the Executive body of Wexford SF.
Last Friday (1st July) Wexford SF held a white line picket on Wexford Bridge to protest against the sabotage of the MV Saoirse and her mission to break the illegal Israeli siege of Gaza. Ger arrived back just in time to take part in the protest.
Sinn Féin members from across the county joined other political groups and the IPSC in an ISTG protest in New Ross this evening (July 4rd). Once again Ger flew the Palestinian flag with pride and promised that this would not be the last attempt to break the blockade of Gaza.
“We’ll keep sending ships until they end their blockade,” he promised.
