2000 people came out in an emergency protest against the Israeli massacre of unarmed peace activists bringing aid to Gaza. Israeli forces boarded the Freedom Flotilla in international waters and began shooting. This is the first of 2 NYC demonstrations. There were many Turkish flags present at the demonstration as well as Palestinian flags. People called for boycott of Israel and an end of U.S. support. As one person put it, we want money for jobs not for war on poor people abroad.
