New Yorkers Show Solidarity With Gaza Residents, Ask Elected Officials to Do the Same


New Yorkers, in the hundreds, held a late afternoon rally in Manhattan on Thursday to show solidarity with Palestinians, call a stop to the Israeli offensive in Gaza and an end to the seven year blockade.

It was one of many rallies for a national day of action to demand that local and national governments end their support of Israel's assault on Gaza. Families came joined by seniors, business people and students. The rally turned into a one-mile march, taking the group from Foley Square, down Broadway to City Hall.
