Famine Walk 2007
Every May for the past 18 years Afri (Action from Ireland) have walked a road of particular importance, a road that was walked in 1849 during the worst of the famine years by people in search of food. This year on the 26th of May, Afri will do that same walk in memory of the many people who died on that road during the famine. They also use the occasion to walk in solidarity with and highlight the plight of people around the world who still suffer in famine regions. Miriam Gormally met Joe Murray from Afri who explained the significance of that walk.
