On the 3rd anniversary of Iceland recognising the state of Palestine, the Palestinian ambassador to Iceland (who resides in Oslo, Norway) will be speaking at a special event arranged by the Iceland-Palestine Association.

The event which coincides with the UN’s annual day of solidarity with the Palestinian people, will start at 14:00 and is open to all.

The ambassador, Mufeed Shami, Iceland’s ambassador to Palestine, María Erla Marelsdóttir, will be speaking at the event and singer Ragnheiður Ólafsdóttir will be performing.

As reported, immediately following the meeting at Iðnó, a launch party for Fyrir Gaza will start. Fyrir Gaza is a charity album featuring prominent Icelandic artists with proceeds going to the Association for Women & Child Protection (AISHA).

That party will be held at Kex Hostel starting 16:00 pm. Entrance is also free and Cell 7, Sóley and Uni Stefson will perform.
