This event is being hosted by the Galway Traveller Movement and the Galway Anti Racism Network.
Families in Cúl Tra halting site in Salthill have been issued a notice to vacate by June 5th by Galway City Council. The families will be holding a demonstration on June 6th to protest any eviction attempts. The families are calling for solidarity from the Traveller and settled community in Galway. The protest will begin at 10am and continue throughout the day.
Supporters are asked to come at 1pm for a strong show of support over lunchtime.
Galway City Council have been well aware of overcrowding on Cúl Tra site for over a decade and yet they have not taken action. Families have been left with nowhere to go through no fault on their own and now the Council want to make them leave their homes with no alternative accommodation.
Evictions are not the solution to the Traveller accommodation crisis. Alternative accommodation must be provided for these families. Join us to show your solidarity and support.
