Last Friday and Saturday actions were held worldwide against the recent atrocities committed by the IOF in Gaza and the illegal Apartheid Wall.
In Montreal on Saturday, protestors marched through the streets carrying a symbolic coffin with the writing ‘United Nations’ to represent the international community’s failure to condemn the Gaza atrocities. A vigil was held after the march.
In New York on Saturday a day of action against the Apartheid Wall was held by the Ad-Hoc Coalition for Justice in the Middle East and DRUM (Desis Rising Up & Moving). The day kicked off with a workshop highlighting the parallels between the wall on the US-Mexico border and the Apartheid Wall in Palestine. This was followed by a march through Manhattan carrying a long black cloth “wall” ( for photo see above).

In London protestors demonstrated outside leading UK corporate sponsor of Israel, department store Marks & Spencer.
