Hundreds of supporters of Palestine gathered on Saturday to denounce continued Canadian support for Israel (Anatolia)

Canada, Denmark, and Ireland witnessed demonstrations in solidarity with the Palestinian people and denouncing the ongoing Israeli aggression against the Gaza Strip, which has reached its 142nd day, leaving about 30,000 martyrs and tens of thousands wounded, most of them women and children.

In the Canadian capital, Ottawa, hundreds of supporters of Palestine gathered yesterday evening, Saturday, to denounce the continued Canadian support for Israel, since the beginning of the aggression on the seventh of last October, and the cessation of Canada’s funding for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Refugees (UNRWA).

The protesters chanted for the liberation of Palestine and an end to the war on Gaza, saying, “Revolution against the occupier, there is no solution other than revolution.” They carried the Palestinian flag and beat drums, so that the echo of the chants reached the Canadian Parliament, in the vicinity of which they gathered.

In Denmark, the European Palestinian Media Center broadcast a video clip of dozens of supporters of the Palestinian cause in the capital, Copenhagen, before they were transported on buses towards the Swedish city of Malmö to participate in a demonstration denouncing the Israeli war on Gaza and to demand a ceasefire.

A message of solidarity

In Ireland, fans of the Dublin and Kerry clubs responded to the organization's call for their team's American football match, which was held yesterday, Saturday, at Cork Park Stadium, to be an opportunity to highlight the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Gaza.

The organizers called on fans of both teams attending the match to send a message of solidarity using their phone lights during the 20th minute of the match, and the goal is to “shed the light of hope” in support of the Palestinian people.

In a joint statement by Irish Sport for Palestine, the organizers expressed their hope that the illuminated stadium will serve as a beacon of hope and convey a strong message to the global community and key decision-makers. Their message is clear: “Stop genocide now.”

The circulated clips documented that phones were lit throughout the stadium, fans of both teams united to send a message of solidarity to Ghara, banners supporting Palestine were raised in the stadium stands, and fans flocked to the park carrying Palestinian flags.

These demonstrations come with the continuation of other demonstrations taking place in several cities and capitals denouncing the intensive Israeli bombing of Gaza, and demanding an end to the aggression that left tens of thousands martyred, wounded and missing. These demonstrations demand the introduction of aid into the Gaza Strip, which is living in a situation described as catastrophic and a famine that is worsening every day.
