Toronto Rallies for Palestinian Liberation

On Monday, October 9, 2023, the Palestinian Youth Movement called for a rally outside Toronto City Hall in support of Palestinian liberation. The mayor of Toronto, Olivia Chow, labeled this rally as “unsanctioned, without a permit” even though the public requires no such permit for people to gather and express themselves. Supporters of Palestinian liberation joined together in the streets to demand freedom for people in Gaza who are being killed by the Israeli apartheid state. These photos were taken during the rally.
