Pro-Palestinian protesters took to the streets in University City Wednesday, marching along Delmar Blvd.
According to Fox2News, about 100 protesters marched along Delmar.
“Even though the cease-fire has taken place, the occupation continues of Palestinian land,” Banan Ead, member of the St. Louis Palestine Solidarity Committee, told Fox2News.
Israeli native Daniel Iken came to the area to represent his side. “They’re not portraying the facts correctly. They’re putting a very extreme bias on it,” he told Fox2. “That side can’t understand that Israel is here to stay, Israel will exist, and to try to wish it away will not happen.”
This is not the first time the Israel/Palestinian issue has touched the U City community. In July 2011, area resident Hedy Epstein joined a flotilla to Gaza.
