New Pro-Palestine protests held across the world against Israel’s war in Gaza
Hundreds of thousands of people are taking to the streets across the world on Saturday to protest against Israel’s barbaric war in Gaza, as it nears the 100-day mark.
The demonstrations are part of a “global day of action for Palestine” and involves about 30 countries.
In Johannesburg, South Africa, demonstrators gathered outside the US consulate. Many in the crowd accused the US, which has supplied Israel with thousands of tons of military equipment since the war started, of “complicity in the bombardment of the Palestinian people”.
The protest has been bolstered by South Africa’s genocide case against Israel at the International Court of Justice.
At rallies in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, people gathered at the US embassy to send a message to Israel’s staunch ally. The US has vetoed United Nations resolutions backed by a vast majority of the UN Security Council calling for an immediate ceasefire.
Thousands of people also gathered outside the US embassy in Indonesia’s capital, Jakarta, waving Indonesian and Palestinian flags and holding signs that read “Boycott Israel” and “Ceasefire Now.”
Children joined thousands of other demonstrators making their way through central London. The plight of children in the Gaza Strip after nearly 100 days of the Israel-Hamas was the focus of the latest London march.
