Thousands of Portuguese have protested in Portugal against Israel’s indiscriminate airstrikes and rocket attacks on Gaza and the killing of innocent Palestinians. Expatriate Bangladeshis also participated in it.
A mass demonstration and rally was organized on behalf of the Palestinians at the call of the General Confederation of Portuguese Workers and the Portuguese Council for Pitch and Co-operation.
Thousands of people gathered at the Martim Maniz Park in Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, on Monday at around 6 pm local time on the issue of humanity, regardless of country, race or religion. The protesters demanded that the Israeli aggression in peaceful protests be stopped and that they be brought to justice in the International Court of Justice.
