Protest against Israeli destruction of Gaza
|France becomes the first country in the world to ban pro Palestinian protests|
Manifestacion a favor de Gaza en Granada, Espana
People around the world are angry but are channeling their anger into world wide protests in solidarity, empathy and sympathy for the men, women and children who live in Gaza and across occupied Palestine. Palestinians in the West Bank have also been protesting against Israel's assault and what amounts to a war crime under international law and Geneva Accords. France has tried to ban Pro Palestine and Gaza protests in Paris and Marseille but French youth and people find ways around the ban. Riots have broken out between Gaza protesters and police in Paris and parts of Marseille. Israelis in Jerusalem burned dolls in front of the famed Yad Vesham Musuem in Jerusalem to protest the continual violence in Gaza and the deaths of 400+ civilians. Nearly 38+countries are protesting against Gaza's destruction led by ordinary citizens. In the United States, Americans both young and old have protested in front of Israeli consulates and embassies, demanding an end to Israeli bombing of Gaza, the unnecessary and undeserved US $3billion in military aid including destructive weapons to Israel and end to US support for Israel's crimes and brutal occupation in towns like Monterey, a "die-in" protest in Palo Alto, Santa Cruz, San Francisco, New York, DC and countless other cities. Ordinary people and citizens have already spoke countless times against the war, destruction and racism that prevails in occupied Palestine. The politicians are listening if only half halfheartedly. Will they take concrete action to finally punish Israel for its longstanding violations of international law and human rights against Palestinian peoples' rights, dignity and fight for self determination?
