Chicago, IL - Chanting, "Gaza, Gaza, Gaza," a crowd estimated by organizers at 15,000 people marched in Chicago July 26. Sponsored by the Coalition for Justice in Palestine, the march is the sixth mass protest sponsored by the coalition since July 5.

At the opening rally, Hatem Abudayyeh of the U.S. Palestinian Community Network and the coalition, brought cheers from the crowd when he said, “Although we are paying a huge cost, Israel is losing. Even with the fourth strongest army in the world, and the support of our U.S. government, Israel is losing. It is losing in Palestine, and it is losing in the court of public opinion.”
