Around the Globe:

Taking to the Streets to Stop the U.S.-Backed Israeli Massacre in Gaza

An outpouring of protest has swept the world against the attack by Israel on the people of Gaza. In many of the protests, the U.S. is being called out for sponsoring Israel’s attack, with the burning of Bush effigies and the throwing of shoes. Demonstrators have found ways to say “We are all Palestinians,” carrying photos of dead and wounded civilians and the devastation in Gaza.
