Chicago. IL -Over 4000 people, mainly Palestinians, marched here today to condemn recent Israeli ag-gression against Palestinians. Since Oct. 1, after right-wing Israelis stormed the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, the Zionist violence has killed 43 people, including eight children, with over 1300 Palestinians injured.

Frank Chapman of the Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression addressed the crowd. He said, “We are here to express our solidarity with the struggle of the Palestinian people for your liberation.”

The youngest speaker at the rally was Sundous Daghash of the U.S. Palestinian Community Network. “We gather here together, protesting the brutality of the Israeli military that continues to murder and displace thousands of civilians and destroy the homes and lands that have been cared and cultivated for centuries.”

Daghash and several other speakers called on the crowd to continue to support Rasmea Odeh, a Pales-tinian community activist from Chicago targeted for repression by the U.S. Department of Justice for her efforts on behalf of her people.
