Netanyahu, you can’t hide. We charge you with genocide!”: A Round-Up of Anti-Israel Protests in the U.S. on November 20

At least ten ral­lies were held on Tues­day to protest Israel’s oper­a­tions in Gaza to thwart rocket attacks that tar­get Israeli civil­ians. Below is a sam­pling of yesterday’s anti-Israel protests:

Atlanta, GA

A rally was orga­nized by a group called “In Sol­i­dar­ity With Gaza” that drew approx­i­mately 150 peo­ple. Demon­stra­tors chanted “From the river to the sea, Pales­tine will be free,”  “Free, Free Pales­tine. Long live Pales­tine!” and “From the beach to the water, Israel is respon­si­ble for slaughter!”

A num­ber of pro­test­ers held signs that used inflam­ma­tory rhetoric, includ­ing “Israel, the new Nazis,” “Stop the geno­cide in Gaza!” “Stop the geno­cide. Save the chil­dren!” and a sign that had a Star of David with a swastika drawn in the cen­ter of it. Some of the pro­test­ers also used chalk to write mes­sages on the side­walk near the demon­stra­tion, includ­ing “Fuck Zion­ism,” “Arab Holo­caust” and “No To Genocide.”

Birm­ing­ham, AL

Approx­i­mately 30 stu­dents on cam­pus got together for an “emer­gency rally” for Gaza, accord­ing to the Uni­ver­sity of Alabama, Birmingham’s cam­pus news­pa­per. Stu­dents chanted “Gaza, Gaza, don’t you cry, Pales­tine will never die,” “Netanyahu, you can’t hide. We charge you with geno­cide!” and “From the river to the sea, Pales­tine will be free!”

The stu­dent news­pa­per also showed pho­tographs of stu­dents hold­ing signs that read, “Gaza, declared by UN, as world’s largest open-air prison” and “U.S. Tax $$ funds eth­nic cleans­ing, APARTHEID, and human rights violations.”

Boston, MA

Approx­i­mately 1,000 peo­ple ral­lied in Cop­ley Square at a demon­stra­tion orga­nized by the North­east­ern Uni­ver­sity chap­ter of Stu­dents for Jus­tice in Pales­tine. The demon­stra­tors held signs that said “65+ years of Israeli col­o­niza­tion and eth­nic cleans­ing,” “End Israeli apartheid,” We say NO to Israel’s war crimes,” “US: Stop sup­port for mur­der­ous, apartheid Israel. Save the peo­ple of Gaza!” and “The mas­sacre goes on! Gaza needs your voice NOW.”
