Demonstrators gathered at Union Square today at 6pm in solidarity with Palestine. Colorful signs shouting a vast array of messages wanted Israel out of Palestinian soil. Most of all, the groups want peace for the region and a space in the American arena for the Arab voice to be heard. Ahmad, a Palestinian man who lead the chants at the rally said, "Today is a beautiful day, but it is also a sad day. It is sad because more killings have taken place along the Gaza Strip, this time including two children." Ahmad said that this was also, "a demonstration against Bush and against the United States government blaming the victim over and over again and supporting Israel unconditionally."

The Demonstrators meet every Saturday in Union Square from 3:00-5:00pm. They stand in solidarity with Palestine and ask anyone who is willing to stand with them.
