Video: Belfast murals reflect Irish solidarity with Palestine

Ahram Online , Thursday 21 Mar 2024

The International Wall on Falls Road in Belfast, north Ireland, has unveiled a series of new murals expressing solidarity with Palestine.



The murals depict life in war-torn Gaza: displaced people in tents, under the rubble, under the falling bombs, or Israeli soldiers standing over dead bodies of Palestinians.

Some of the statements on artworks read: "Stop the Slaughter -- Ceasefire Now."

Fences near the International Wall are decorated with teddy bears wearing T-shirts that read "Boycott the Israeli Genocide."

"I walked by this today, so beautiful and emotional. Proud to be Irish," a social media commentator wrote.

Naked Ireland, a YouTube channel dedicated to travel, places, and culture in Ireland, posted a short video on the wall.
