Demonstrations in solidarity with Palestine have seen thousands around the world march and voice their grief and anger at Israel’s deliberate killing of civilians, predominantly women and children, despite facing opposition, and even arrests.
The ongoing conflict between Hamas and Israel began on the 7th of October 2023, when Hamas breached the Gaza-Israel barrier and killed communities and attacked Israel Défense Forces. Over 200 civilians have been taken as hostages.
Weeks after Israel cut water, electricity, fuel, and aid into the Gaza Strip, whilst continuing attacking with an enormous amount of indiscriminate strikes on residential areas, schools and hospitals and killing over 7,000 civilians, largely innocent children and women. the humanitarian crisis is only deepening. Ceasefire and a stop to the collective punishment of the Palestinian people.
