Fredericton – A group of people with Fredericton Palestine Solidarity and Jews for a Just Peace Fredericton delivered a list of the names and ages of the 214 Gazans killed in Israel’s ongoing assault since July 8th to  MP Keith Ashfield today, July 16th. Ashfield was not in his office.

The group expressed their condemnation of the Harper government’s enthusiastic support for Israel’s war on Gaza with reporters present.

The group left their contact information with Ashfield’s receptionist but are not hopeful that they will get a meeting with Ashfield. He has refused their meeting requests since becoming Fredericton’s MP in 2008.
