    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."
    - taliaday, CNN iReport producer

    Today, Chicago's streets were blocked by Police and watched by onlookers as Americans from all walks of life peacefully protested against the oppression, destruction and massacres happening now in Palestine ~ Gaza.
    Many children marched with families in solidarity with their "friends" from Palestine. Thousands showed their passions by holding signs and chanting "Free Free Palestine." as they marched for miles throughout the city.
