    Palestinian protestors in Chicago

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Pro-Palestinian protesters marched peacefully through the streets of Chicago on August 9, Bettyabebe said. She was visiting the city and walking around Millennium Park when she came across the protesters. She says the mood was very powerful. "I saw many little kids protesting with their parents holding signs saying: "It's not war, it's a massacre," and "Let Gaza live," she said. Personally, she thinks the situation in the region is grim with the death of many Gaza civilians. "Israel must find a more effective way to kill terrorists without killing thousands of citizens," she said.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    Palestinian protestors demonstrated across the streets of Chicago. Hundreds of people from all races joined in the protest as they marched passed Millennium Park.
