Asymmetrical Demonstrating

A pair of demonstrators advocating for peace, top, between Palestinians and Israelis stood alone on Third Avenue in New York City on Sunday morning before a rally in support of Israel. A demonstrator at a We Stand With Israel rally on 42nd Street fastened an Israeli flag to a metal barrier during the event.

Similar rallies were held around the country in connection to the Week of Solidarity across North America. Nearly 10,000 activists came together to show solidarity with the people of Israel, sympathy for all people who are hurt and in harm's way, and hope for a solid cease-fire, which will end the rocket attacks on the people of southern Israel and ultimately pave the way for peace in the future.
