Protesters gather in Boston in response to Gaza conflict

Hundreds of people supporting Israelis and Palestinians descended on Copley Square this afternoon, beating drums, delivering rival chants, and occasionally screaming at each other.

Pro-Palestinian demonstrators carrying Palestinian flags, some with bullhorns, chanted “Free Palestine” in response to Israel’s actions in Gaza, while pro-Israeli protesters in a counter-rally chanted “Free Gaza from Hamas.” Police stood between the groups.
