World-wide, protests against Israel’s ongoing massacre in Gaza are intensifying. Protests have been reported, from the United States to the United Kingdom, Russia to Malaysia, and the boycott of Israeli products is growing.

Protests were held on 17th November across Mexico City, Rotterdam, New York, Baghdad, Rabat and elsewhere. Protestors –university students, school children and journalists- continue to protest despite reprisals from the authorities.

Students in several universities across the US and Europe have staged walk-outs of their classrooms to demonstrate their condemnation of Israel and US state support for the inhuman killing. On Wednesday 25th October 2023, students at more than 100 U.S. college campuses staged walkouts demanding an end to U.S. aid to Israel and calling for a  ceasefire in Israel’s assault on the Palestinian people in Gaza. In Columbia University, students demanded that the University boycott Israeli institutions.

Every day, tens of thousands of Israelis take out marches in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv demanding that the Netanyahu government stop the attacks on Palestinians and ensure the safe release of their loved ones held hostage. Public anger in Israel has been growing, with families of many of the captives held in Gaza bitterly critical of the government’s response and calling for their relatives to be brought back home.

Meanwhile, reporters in various media companies have been penalised for reporting the reality about events in the Gaza strip. The BBC has taken six reporters in the Middle East off the air, for reports in support of Palestine and critical of Israel. The Guardian is also considering similar action against a cartoonist while a Philadelphia paper has dismissed a sports reporter for tweeting support for Palestine.
