30,000 Take to the Streets in Rome to Demand, “The Wall Must Fall!”

In a tremendous show of solidarity with Palestinian mobilization and resistance to Israel’s Apartheid Wall, 30,000 people invaded the streets of Rome on November 8 to demonstrate against the Wall and Israeli Apartheid policies. Movements, political parties, trade unions, grassroots and solidarity groups throughout Italy formed a united front and took to the streets in a powerful denunciation of the Occupation of Palestine and the construction of the Apartheid Wall.

In addition, a speaker from the Anti-Apartheid Wall Campaign brought the front-line of Palestinian organizing to the streets of Rome in an amplified telephone speech to rally up and bridge the resistance movements in Palestine and Italy.

Momentum continued after the demonstrations with additional events including a concert in support of Palestine and against the Apartheid Wall.
