Hundreds of people gathered on Friday July 11th in downtown Montreal to demonstrate support for Palestinians and to protest against the recent assault by the Israeli Army on the Gaza Strip. Since Tuesday July 8th, over 275 Gazans have been killed by Israeli air strikes, many of whom are children and over 2,050 Palestinians wounded in what Israel is calling “Operation Protective Edge”.

Protesters marched in downtown Montreal while holding the longest Palestinian flag in the world. As chanting filled the streets, they stopped in front of the bookstore Chapters/Indigo to denounce its support of the Israeli military and to call for its boycott.  The protesters ended their manifestation in front of the Quebec Premier’s Office and demanded that the Canadian and Quebec Governments stop supporting Israel’s violations of human rights and international law.
