Palestine Rally to be held in Doha on Tuesday

Palestine Rally to be held in Doha on Tuesday

By Doha 2003

UPDATE: PROTEST IS OPEN TO ALL, FROM 8pm ON TUESDAY.

As the latest bombing campaign by Israel into the Gaza Strip continues into its seventh day, the number of Palestinians killed in the blasts has now surpassed 170 people.

Calls from the international community for a cease-fire between the Israeli government and the Hamas-led Palestinians have been growing, but there appears to be no truce in sight.

In light of the bloodshed, several Qatar residents are planning to hold a protest on Tuesday evening in solidarity with the Palestinian people. The event appears to be part of a worldwide effort to draw attention to the bloodshed.

The Palestinian embassy in Doha has confirmed that an organized protest would take place in front of its building in the Diplomatic area (near West Bay petrol station) after sunse.

Political protests in Qatar are rare, and typically must be pre-approved by the government.

However, in recent years, residents have congregated to rally for causes in Egypt, Syria and Libya.

And state-approved events for Palestine have also been organized in the past. (Source: Doha News)

Fighting injustice and discrimination in Gaza by the Israelis and they don't allow women! Disgusting. There should be a protest agains the corrupt Palestinian government and representatives in Doha.
