Photos: Protests around the world stand with PalestineInternational protests and demonstrations around the world expressed solidarity with Palestine on July 5, as Palestinian communities in exile and diaspora, social justice movements and solidarity organizers held events in major cities globally. These international protests were organized in response to the killing of Palestinian boy Mohammad Abu Khdeir and 9 other Palestinians since June 12, the mass arrests and raids of over 600 Palestinians, checkpoints, brutal beatings, bombings and assassinations in Gaza, and the ongoing siege, apartheid and occupation – more protests are being announced daily.

Simultaneously, and inspiring these international actions, Palestinians have taken to the streets in all areas of historic Palestine – from Shu’afat, where Abu Khdeir was kidnapped, tortured and murdered, and other areas of Jerusalem, to the West Bank, Gaza, and Occupied Palestine ’48, where marchers claimed the streets of Nazareth, Umm el-Fahm, Shafa’amr, Ar’ara and Kufr Manda.
