As February 2024 began, the struggle in solidarity with the Palestinian resistance continued in earnest. 

As the sun rose on Feb. 1, approximately 200 protesters, including a reporter from Struggle-La Lucha, gathered in front of Union Station in Washington, D.C., to demand an end to the U.S.-led war on Palestine and Yemen, and to restore funding for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA). 

The Biden administration led the charge for the West to collectively withdraw all funding for UNRWA after the Zionist entity levied phony accusations regarding UNRWA involvement in the Oct. 7, 2023, attacks against occupation forces.

Today’s protests weren’t limited to Union Station. Hundreds of anti-Zionist demonstrators took to the streets to stop traffic at intersections and exit ramps across the capital. The message was clear: no business as usual in the imperial core as long as Palestine remains under siege. 

The coalition that organized the “Shut Down D.C.” day of demonstrations included the Palestinian Youth Movement, the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Civil Rights, Party for Socialism and Liberation, and many more.
