A large group gathered at Niagara Square on Saturday for an interfaith rally organized by local Muslim, Jewish, and Christian groups. The purpose of the event was to call for an end to the violence in Gaza. Protesters chanted slogans such as "Free, free Palestine" and "Cease-fire now" as they walked in a circle. Imams, rabbis, and pastors led prayers and gave remarks during the rally. The event drew people of all ages, including young children who showed their support for Palestinians. The rally in Niagara Square was one of many similar demonstrations taking place across the country.
In Sacramento, California, pro-Palestinian demonstrators disrupted the California Democratic Party's state convention. Party officials were forced to cancel evening events due to concerns about the safety and security of delegates. The pro-Palestinian demonstrators were calling for a cease-fire in the Israel-Hamas war. Roads near the convention center were briefly closed as a large crowd gathered outside.
In Albuquerque, New Mexico, about 100 people held a demonstration in Morningside Park. They chanted slogans and carried banners demanding freedom for Palestine. The demonstration aimed to raise awareness about the conflict in Gaza and show support for the Palestinian cause.
The interfaith rally in Buffalo, the disruption at the California Democratic Party convention, and the demonstration in Albuquerque all highlight the widespread concern and activism surrounding the ongoing violence in Gaza.
