In Berlin, people gathered to protest the current state of affairs in Gaza. This was prompted by the recent attack by the Israeli army on Rafah. The police reported that around 300 people had assembled at the Brandenburg Gate, launching chants and waving Palestinian flags. While there was an attempted physical attack on a press representative, the situation remained calm overall.
Meanwhile, in Neukölln, a spontaneous meeting was confirmed by the police speaker. Reports indicated that around 100 people had gathered on the corner of Pannierstrasse and Sonnenallee, chanting “Free Palestine” and “Ceasefire Now”. Videos on social media also showed people spelling out “Rafah” with tea lights. Another video showed people chanting and demanding an end to the Israeli occupation, labeling Israel as a terrorist state and shouting “Stop the Genocide” and “Free Palestine”.
It is believed that these protests are linked to the Israeli army’s attack on Rafah, which has led to an influx of people into Berlin protesting against the situation in Gaza and the conflict between Israel and Palestine. Videos on social media have deemed this event a success.
