Richard Boyd Barrett is a rarity among politicians, a man of principle who matches his words with action.
People Before Profit TD Richard Boyd-Barrett reading his very moving poem The Trees of Palestine at the Gaza Kids to Ireland Fundraiser in the Purty Kitchen last night. In his fascinating intro to the poem Richard explains how his witnessing of the horrendous treatment of Palestinians, as well as their courageous and dignified resistance to Apartheid Israel, during a youthful trip to Palestine inspired him to get involved in politics. Highly recommended viewing. Donate to Gaza Kids to Ireland here.
