Free Palestinian prisoners!

Free Palestinian prisoners!Activists protested outside the Israeli Consulate in Philadelphia during rush hour on June 27, as an emergency response to the raids, bombings, demolitions, murders and kidnappings by Israeli Defense Forces against occupied Palestine over the previous week. Participants especially focused on the demand to free the thousands of Palestinians held in prisons, including hundreds of children.

The rally was called on two days’ notice, in response to the appeal by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine “to take to the streets and take action in response to the ongoing occupation’s attacks and atrocities against almost every city, town, refugee camp and village in the West Bank and Gaza.”

Protesters chanted for an hour and a half, held up signs and banners, and handed out leaflets to passers-by as well as passing drivers, many of whom honked horns in solidarity.
