A rally of thousands took place in The Hague in support of Palestine.

Thousands of people took part in a pro-Palestine demonstration in The Hague on Sunday, with protesters calling for an immediate ceasefire in the Gaza Strip.

Thousands of people gathered at Maliveld Park in The Hague on Sunday to call for an immediate ceasefire in the Gaza Strip and the sending of humanitarian aid to its residents. The pro-Palestinian demonstration was organized by a group of Palestinian organizations based in the Netherlands. Activists called for Palestinian flags to be raised on the balconies of houses and cars starting tomorrow.

Some protesters chanted the slogan: “Shame on Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte and all Dutch politicians who supported the genocide against Gaza. Blood is on your hands!”

Demonstrators later marched through the streets of The Hague, accompanied by police, and a large group of motorcyclists also joined the protest.

Demonstrators marched past the Peace Palace, home to the International Court of Justice, chanting: “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” “After today there will be no occupation,” and “Stop the genocide against Gaza.”


The protest took place peacefully without incident.
