BROOKLYN - Hundreds of pro-Palestine supporters marched across the Brooklyn Bridge to 1 Police Plaza Wednesday.

The rally was one of several taking place around the U.S. in the wake of the violent escalation in the Middle East.

While there was a cease-fire, Israel continues its airstrikes and Hamas fighters continue firing rockets into Israel.

Protesters in Brooklyn say they are sad to see this violence and hope for peace.

The activists say they are also connecting the Palestinian struggle to oppressed communities in the U.S.
