Pro-Palestinian activists have demonstrated outside of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference in Washington, DC to protest against the most powerful pro-Israel lobbying group in the United States.

The demonstration, which was largely attended by members of the left-wing Jewish Resistance group, on Sunday came a day ahead of the annual AIPAC conference in Washington, DC.

The protesters condemned the pro-Israel policies of US President Donald Trump and the ongoing Israeli occupation of Palestinian territory as well as continued Israeli settlement activity on the occupied land.

“We’re protesting [AIPAC] en masse as Jews to say that to be Jewish in America at this moment doesn’t mean to support Israel unconditionally,” said 25-year-old Yonah Lieberman, one of the co-founders of the anti-settlement group IfNotNow, which organized the rally.
