International protests and demonstrations around the world expressed solidarity with Palestine on July 5, through July 12 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 over 100 by occupation forces’ bombings and assassinations in Gaza, the torture and killing of Palestinian boy Mohammad Abu Khdeir, the mass arrests and raids of over 1000 Palestinians, checkpoints, brutal beatings, and the ongoing siege, apartheid and occupation – more protests are being announced daily. Click here for the current, updated list of international actions in support of the Palestinian people – or email samidoun@samidoun.ca to add your own! Please also email samidoun@samidoun.ca to add your photos to this page.

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.
