On Saturday Nov. 4, tens of thousands of protesters gathered in Freedom Plaza in D.C. for one of the largest pro-Palestine demonstrations in U.S. history. The protest, co-sponsored by nine organizations including the Palestinian Youth Movement and ANSWER Coalition, demanded President Biden call for an immediate ceasefire in Israel and Palestine. Programming began around 2 p.m. and speakers continued until about 5 p.m. Protesters then began marching down Pennsylvania Avenue and finished outside the White House, where they continued chants directed at President Biden to end the violence in Gaza.
