Thousands of people supporting Palestinian rights converged Saturday on Washington from around the country, demanding a cease-fire in the Gaza Strip and an end to American aid to Israel amid a deepening war.
The demonstration appeared to be one of the largest expressions of solidarity with the Palestinian people to date. From the stage, speakers led the crowd in chants of “Free, free Palestine! Free, free Palestine!” and “Cease-fire now!” Many lashed out at President Biden for his support of Israel, which has responded to a Hamas attack on civilians with a deadly invasion of Gaza.
