They began with their typical chanting, with phrases such as “Gaza, Gaza, don’t you cry; Palestine will never die!” and “No more killing, no more hate; Israel is a racist state!”
Members of Code Pink as well as other Pro-Palestine organizations and their supporters then continued with a “Die-In” where they laid down with the names of dead Palestinians on tombstones which they kept in hand as the names were read aloud.
After participating in the “Die-In,” some activists such as Medea Benjamin (co-founder of Code Pink) and Rabbi Yiroel Dovid Weiss (anti-zionist activist) spoke to News2share about why they believe The United States must refrain from supporting Israel.
