1,000 march in Minneapolis to protest Israeli bombing of Gaza

Print

More than 1,000 people of many ethnic groups and many faiths gathered at 44th and Central in Northeast Minneapolis to rally in support of the Palestinian people on the day Israel invaded Gaza with army troops. The death toll is estimated at 274 Palestinians, mostly children and women, and two Israelis. The rally was organized by the Anti-War Committee.

There was a counter protest of Israel supporters seeking cessation of the Hamas rocket assault.

  1. These demonstrators may have chosen not to speak about the rockets launched by Hamas.  Are they naive?  Are they misrepresenting the story of the conflict?

    Their cries for Free Palestine remind us that there is more to the story than the mainstream media cares to share. We’ve been told the rockets are the cause of this conflict, while the violence of occupation, the suffocation of a blockade, and the Palestinian right to resist have received little to no attention. If we’re not hearing this crucial part of the narrative, people must find ways to tell it, to fill in this gap, even if it means that their telling of the story may come across as incomplete.
