In Solidarity with Palestinian Prisoners: The Battle of Empty Stomachs

I attended this event today in solidarity with the Palestinian struggle for freedom and recognition. It was an interesting event. Nice to see a fairly large crowd slowly build up in  front of the Vancouver Art Gallery on a sunny afternoon --lots of shoppers and tourists walking by. It was a bit bizarre and disturbing to see the pro-Israeli and Zionist supporters setting up directly across from the solidarity event. I forget how disruptive heckling from Israel supporters can be. And some of their supporters really were filled with malice and testosterone as  they verbally challenged the solidarity supporters of Palestine. --Mike Ma
