The Amnesty International Letterkenny group has announced plans to hold a solidarity vigil for refugees and asylum seekers.
The vigil is to take place in Market Square, Letterkenny on Sunday 8th May, 3pm.
A spokesperson said: “There are many thousands of refugees from countries across the world who now live in Ireland, many of whom are living in direct provision centres, who need support, help, friendship, and solidarity. This year alone, the war in Ukraine has seen millions of refugees having to flee and thousands of people have arrived in Ireland over the past few weeks. Refugees who are now living in Donegal come from countries in every part of the world.
“Amnesty welcomes and supports all those, wherever they come from, who have been forced to leave their country in search of safety due to war, conflict or persecution.
This vigil is an expression of solidarity with all of these people. Everyone is welcome. Please bring a flag or emblem of your homeland if you wish.”
