Over 250 people rallied Monday evening, January 5, 2009 outside the Midtown building that houses the Israeli consulate to protest the hundreds of casualties in the Gaza Strip caused by Israel’s bombing and ground offensive. The attack came in response to rocket fire by Hamas into Israel.

Demonstrators lined both sides of Spring Street at 12th Avenue during rush hour with dozens of signs bearing messages such as “End the Occupation Now” and images of bloodied Palestinan children. The demonstrators were met by a small vocal contingent of pro-Israel supportors. According to organizers this was the fourth pro-Palestinian protest in Atlanta since Israel began its attack on Dec. 27.
