Mid-Hudson News reports that protesters rallied in the rain on Dec. 3 at a March for Free Palestine rally in Newburgh. Among several issues, they called for Rep. Pat Ryan to support a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas and oppose any further additional military aid to Israel. Mie Inouye, a protest organizer, said they wanted a different plan than the current bombing. Inouye said, “It could be a two-state solution, it could be a one-state solution, we don’t have a position on that, and I don’t think it’s our goal to decide, but we know the only way to keep actually keep Palestinians and Israelis safe is to have an end to the occupation of Palestine, whatever that looks like.” An estimated 1,200 Israelis were killed during the initial attack by Hamas on October 7. The Israelis have attacked Gaza since then, killing an estimated 15,000 Palestinians so far. Several local protests and rallies have been held in Albany, Kingston, Catskill, and Newburgh since Oct. 7. Mid-Hudson News reports
