Sinn Féin's Six County MEP Bairbre de Brún returned home from Palestine yesterday after having spent time their on a cross-party EU delegation to view at first hand the devastation caused to the area following the latest Israeli bombardment.
Understandably the trip impacted upon her and she was just home but she felt compelled to go on to Stormont Live and start the process of letting people here in the North know what is going on.
Afterwards we headed round for a cup of tea, Bairbre was filling me in on some of the things she saw, I could see it had clearly effected her; unsuprisingly of course.
She will be speaking about her experience in the Cultúrlann on Thursday the 5th March at 6:30pm
She will be joined by Dr Saeb Sha'ath of the charity Irish Medical Aid for Palestine. At this event the party will hand over the money from the massive fund-raising drive it carried out across Béal Feirste.
People should try their best to go along and get just a brief insight into the real situation in Gaza
