Pro-Palestine demonstrators rally in Australia's Melbourne to demand Gaza ceasefire

For the tenth week in a row, thousands of demonstrators marched in the southeastern Australian city of Melbourne on Sunday to express solidarity with Palestinians and demand ceasefire in the Gaza Strip.

Footage shows activists marching with flags and banners through the city's central business district while chanting "Palestine will be free" and "Ceasefire now!"


"We are for freedom. We want ceasefire. So that’s our main course and the reason why we are here today. We’ve been here for 10 weeks every Sunday. We won’t stop until it ends," said a demonstrator.


"It’s been going on for 75 years plus and what they do is inhumane. And the killing of the innocent people, women, children, elderly, [and] even men is just horrific," said another activist.


The series of protests come after Israel started its bloody onslaught on Gaza on October 7 after the territory’s Palestinian resistance movements launched the surprise Operation al-Aqsa Storm against the occupying entity in response to the regime’s decades-long campaign of bloodletting and devastation against Palestinians.
