Israel Bombs: NYC Continues Protests

(Image by Palina Prasasouk)   Details   DMCA

As news of death tolls rising to more than 190, the bombing of a hospital, 800 more wounded and a possible cease fire--thousands stood in the rain during a flash flood warning today in New York City. Jews Boycott Israel, Al-AwdaNY, and citizens from Turkey were just some of the groups who stood their ground from 3-7PM outside the United Nations on 47th & 1st Ave today. After storming for an hour the sun came out for the rest of the protest. This is the third large protest in a week for Palestine in New York City. Thousands more have protested globally from London to India to Japan and many more.

Here is a 90-second video of the people of New York at the United Nations showing some light amiss darkness. Some smiling and some fighting back tears of sadness by smiling.
