Service of thanksgiving for journalist Shireen Abu Akleh to be held at Fleet Street church

Artists for Palestine UK

A service of thanksgiving for journalist Shireen Abu Akleh is to be held at St Bride’s Church, Fleet Street, on Tuesday 28th June at 11am. The service is open to all.

Shireen Abu Akleh was a much loved and respected Palestinian journalist. She was killed by Israeli forces in May, as she arrived, wearing a clearly marked press vest, to report on an Israeli incursion in occupied Jenin. Her case has been referred to the International Criminal Court (ICC).

St Bride’s has had a long association with the press, ever since the emergence of the first newspapers in London’s Fleet Street. It is known as the ‘journalists’ church‘ for its remembrance of journalists, especially those in danger or who have been killed.

This memorial service will pay respect to the professionalism of Shireen Abu Akleh’s work and give thanks for her life.
