Gaza: Hundrends of people protested at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul in Boston protested Against Massacre Of more than 60 Palestinian’s Killed During Peaceful Protests in Gaza.
Speaking to the hundreds who were demonstrating against the policies of Israel and the United States in downtown Boston, Nidal Al-Azraq of Lexington struck a hopeful yet defiant tone.
“The occupation has failed to destroy us,” Al-Azraq, a 40-year-old Palestinian who grew up in a refugee camp, told the crowd gathered Tuesday inside the Cathedral Church of St. Paul.
That proclamation was met with cheers.
The gathering marked the Nakba, which is Arabic for “catastrophe,” and refers to Israel’s founding and the displacement of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians.
