Boston, Mass.-July 19, 2014:
About 300 protesters turned out at Park St. in Boston today July 19 to speak out against Israel’s brutal attack on Gaza’s Palestinians. A very emotional and spirited protest with speakers on the plight of Palestinians, loud and energetic chants of “Free Free Palestine” and ending with a mock “die-in” with the names of some of the hundreds of Palestinians killed read aloud. There was a small handful of pro US/pro Israel hecklers there which the Boston police seperated from our demonstration.
The protest today was sponsored by a wide coalition of Boston activists — Jewish Voices For Peace, UJP, ANSWER, Boston IAC, Committee For Peace And Human Rights, UNAC, as well as many others. Here are video and photo links:
