Large Palestine solidarity protest engulfs downtown Tampa
October 30, 2023
Tampa, FL – Over 1000 protesters congregated at Curtis Hixon Park in downtown Tampa, October 29, in solidarity with the ongoing struggle in Palestine. Demonstrators led a march along the Tampa Riverwalk. Protesters chanted “Hey Biden can’t you see? Bibi’s on a killing spree!”
Many at the march were quick to condemn the blank check the Biden administration has given Israel to operate with impunity.
“The most important thing we need to act around right now is ending U.S. aid to Israel. The politicians who run this country are enabling this crime against humanity” said Val Beron of the Tampa Bay Community Action Committee.
This was the first major mobilization in Tampa since Israel expanded its ground operations in Gaza on Friday, October 27.
