    Solidarity peace walk for Palestinian people, 21-11-2012, Valletta


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     iReporter alanfalzon took these images of a pro-Palestinian march in Valletta, capital of Malta, on Wednesday night in the hours between the announcement of an Israeli-Gaza cease-fire and its implementation. "The atmosphere was peaceful, quiet, just showing solidarity with the Palestinian people," he said. "There were some Syrians there as well as others, they just walked and sang Free Palestine. There were children there, too, of all ages." He says Malta's unique geographical location between Europe and North Africa makes it a country close to both Europeans and the Arab community. Those marching were pleased to hear of the cease-fire, he said, although he adds: "They still insist the truce is just temporary and say that everyone needs something put in place that's ongoing, or the violence won't stop."
