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.
