Following U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, thousands of people marched all across the world in defiance of his decision and in solidarity with Palestine. Here are a couple of cities where protests were held:
About 4,000 Greeks and Palestinians gathered in Athens and marched towards the U.S. embassy on December 8th in a protest organised by Communist Youth of Greece (KNE) in the Greek capital.
Egyptian journalists staged a protest on December 7th in front of the Journalists Syndicate in Cairo, while also criticising Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi's response to Trump's decision.
The march started from mosques across the city just after midday prayers on December 8th. Protesters also marched in several other provinces of Algeria.
