    Palestine supporters arrested after protesting outside Israeli Consulate in San Francisco


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Santiago Mejia documented a Pro-Palestinian protest outside of the Israeli Consulate in San Francisco, California, Monday afternoon. While filming he observed at least 30 people from several different backgrounds, holding signs and flags while chanting, "Stop bombing schools, stop bombing hospitals!"

    Mejia said, "It was a small group of protesters with a big impact. One of the protesters said she had lost three friends in Gaza, all civilians."
