Bay Area activists support the people of Gaza!
In light of the atrocities in Gaza where over 56 people were killed over the past six days of Israel’s most recent offensive "Autumn Clouds" against the people in Beit Hanoun in Gaza, dozens of Bay Area activists stood in solidarity today with the people of Beit Hanoun and protested the Israeli aggression against the people of Palestine and the siege of Gaza. The group started out at the Israeli Consulate in San Francisco where an excessive amount of police and a handful of Israel supporters waited for the vigil to begin. From there the demonstration walked to Montgomery and Market to bring the atrocities in Gaza to the attention people of San Francisco.
