    In Chicago Thousands March in Solidarity with Palestine today.


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Fatima Puskar observed a large Pro-Palestine protest in Chicago, Illinois, on Monday. Puskar said thousands of people from all walks of life were in attendance to demonstrate against the recent actions in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

    "There were about 20-25 people who were masking or doing a 'dead in,' meaning they were laying on the sidewalks pretending to play dead as if to represent what is happening in Palestine, a father was carrying his daughter, a person was holding a sign that read 'FREE PALESTINE, Anti-War Committee - Chicago.' A bridge was completed covered with protesters who were marching."
