In the midst of the ongoing Israel-Hamas conflict, families of hostages taken by Hamas in attacks on October 7 gathered in front of the Kirya. People gathered outside the government’s military headquarters in Tel Aviv, demanding swift action for the release of their loved ones.

The rally, organized by the affected families and the community, was not an anti-government protest, as emphasized in their statement released ahead of the event.

According to CNN, more than 200 hostages are still being held in Gaza following Hamas’ attacks nearly a month ago. The families, gripped by anxiety and uncertainty, urged the government to take stronger measures to secure the safe return of their relatives.

Additionally, across the globe, voices of solidarity for Palestine resonated as around 20,000 people gathered in Melbourne for a pro-Palestinian rally, marked by peaceful demonstrations and a united call for peace.

The New York Times reported that cities across the United States, including New York, Nashville, Cincinnati, Las Vegas, and Orono, Maine, witnessed massive protests condemning Israel’s military campaign in Gaza. Demonstrators demanded an immediate ceasefire and an end to the siege, advocating for the cessation of American aid to Israel.

The protesters’ chants, notably “From the river to the sea!”, have sparked controversy, with some condemning it as an antisemitic call for Israel’s destruction. However, many protesters defended the slogan as a cry for freedom. The demonstrations also spread across Europe, with rallies held in Paris, Berlin, London, Manchester, Oxford, Newcastle, and Liverpool.

In London, a significant gathering took place in Trafalgar Square, where 40,000 people waved Palestinian flags and held banners calling for an immediate ceasefire. The event, organized by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, saw 29 arrests by London police, citing offenses including inciting racial hatred, racially motivated crimes, violence, and assaulting a police officer.

As the global outcry against the conflict continues to escalate, the world watches, hopeful for a resolution that will bring an end to the violence and suffering in the region.
