Support Palestine Protest AIPAC 14

Washington DC, March 26, 2017. Over a thousand Palestinian rights activists and supporters rallied in front of the White House and marched to the Washington Convention Center to protest the American Israel Public Affairs Committee yearly meeting. Around a dozen activists affiliated with the Jewish youth peace group If Not Now were removed (but not arrested!) by police for blocking one of the many entrances to the AIPAC event. A handful of counter protesters affiliated with AIPAC and the Jewish Defense League were very well protected by DC Police as they taunted the much larger contingent of peace marchers. The event was largely peaceful but some isolated scuffles broke out late in the day.
