Thousands take to the streets of Vienna in Gaza protest

Almost 11,000 demonstrators have attended a pro-Palestinian protest in the Austrian capital Sunday between the Hofburg Palace and the Rathaus town hall, in anger at Israel’s military campaign which has killed more than 400 people already.

‘Free, free, free Palestine’ and ‘Let Gaza Live’, the protesters changed while wielding a variety of posters and flags.

“We are not against the Jewish people. the Jewish people should feel free and live free like everybody. We are against the Zionists, actually, who are supported from this big, big mafia and lobby around the world,”Abderrahmen Laarouchi told Ruplty.

 

The protesters made their way to the historic Hofburg Palace, which is now the official residence of the country’s president. The demonstrators were playing drums and some were carrying bloody sheets wrapped like a dead body or dolls, signs saying “Made in Israel”.
