MORE than 70 people braved the cold weather to protest against the Israeli invasion of Gaza.
The last-minute protest on Saturday, organised by Wrexham Peace and Justice Forums, heard from Steve Ryan, of the PCS union, and Elfed ap Nefydd, a local peace activist.
Cllr Marc Jones, of Plaid Cymru, chaired the meeting and also read out messages of solidarity from Jill Evans MEP and North Wales AM Janet Ryder.
The crowd heard how the Gaza strip is smaller than Wrexham borough, but holds 1.5 million people, currently living in appalling conditions due to a three-year blockade by Israel, they said. Three quarters do not have electricity and many do not have access to clean drinking water.
Mr Ryan urged Wrexham people to join a boycott of Israeli goods.
Organisers say they may hold another protest this Saturday, depending on the ongoing situation. For the latest details, visit wpjf.org.uk or phone 01978 366 735.
