‘Nakba March’: Pro-Palestine protests walk 21km to the ICC

Since 7 October, the Israeli army has been waging a devastating genocidal war on Gaza that, as of December 18, has killed 19,453 and wounded 52,286, most of them children and women

New Delhi, Dec. 18: Hundreds of demonstrators gathered outside the International Criminal Court (ICC) in the Hague on Sunday in solidarity with Palestine and to denounce the Israeli attacks on Gaza, reports Middle East Monitor.

According to the report, the demonstrators arrived at the ICC headquarters on foot from the city of Leiden. They called the event the “Nakba March” and chanted slogans in Arabic and English while they walked the 21 kilometres to the ICC, calling for “Freedom for Palestine” and “Ceasefire now.”

Demonstrator Marieke de Lange told the press that she was participating in the march so the voices of the “innocent and defenceless Palestinians” are heard.

Claire van Beek criticised the Netherlands’ provision of F-35 fighter jet parts to Israel, calling for it to stop. She also stressed that western leaders “must stand up to protect humanity.”
