The World Stands With Palestine: Protests On Every Continent

In the days since the latest Israeli offensive against Gaza, protests have sprung up in numerous cities around the world to support Palestine and call for an end to the ongoing attacks. Recognizing the need to demonstrate solidarity, a Tumblr has been created to document these protests. The account, which is anonymous, states its purpose is to collect “Photos, videos, and reports from demonstrations in solidarity with Palestine during Israel's ongoing attacks and collective punishment.” These are images from just a few of the demonstrations that have taken place in countries around the world.
