About 500 protesters took part in a demonstration in Dublin yesterday calling for the expulsion of the Israeli ambassador to Ireland and safe passage for the Rachel Corrie aid vessel which is en route to Gaza.

The protesters marched under Palestinian and Turkish flags, following five coffins symbolising some of those who lost their lives on Monday when an aid flotilla carrying supplies intended for Gaza was raided by Israeli commandos.

Starting at the Central Bank plaza, the protest moved to the Dáil before reaching the Israeli embassy where demonstrators staged a sit-down protest and observed a minute’s silence for the nine activists who died.
