Protests are continuing around the world. In London, 100,000 people marched to demand a ceasefire in Gaza Saturday.
Protester: “Today, I’m here today to show my love and my compassion for the Palestinians who are suffering in Gaza and all the innocent lives that are being lost. We’ve come today — it’s not about religion, it’s about humanity, coming together and fighting for what’s right.”
Here in New York, multiple protests took place over the weekend. In Brooklyn, police cracked down on peaceful protesters Saturday, giving just a five-minute warning to disperse before assaulting and reportedly arresting 19 people. This is an activist speaking earlier in the day.
Protester: “I’m here because I’m a Jew, born in Jerusalem, and I’m horrified and enraged that my government here in the U.S. is sending weapons and money and never-ending, unconditional diplomatic support for Israel as it ceaselessly slaughters Palestinians.”
