Dozens gather in Parkchester for rally in support of Palestinians
Dozens of people gathered in Parkchester on Saturday night for a rally in support of Palestinians.
Bengalis for Palestine organized the event. They brought drums, signs, flags and chanted to express solidarity with Palestinians.
Several pro-Palestinians and pro-Israel rallies have been held across the city in the weeks since Hamas militants invaded Israel on Oct. 7.
Participants at the rally called for a cease fire in Gaza as the war intensifies. Members of the NYPD were also present to ensure the safety of those present.
