Minneapolis protest for Palestine 7/8

Hundreds rallied outside of Senator Klobuchar’s office, marched to the Star Tribune headquarters for more chanting, and then returned to the Senator’s office. Thank you all for raising your voices against Israel’s collective punishment of Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza, and especially for standing with the family of Mohammad and Tariq Abu Khdair.
