A group of activists with the Baltimore Peoples Power Assembly shut down the Baltimore City Council’s biweekly meeting in solidarity with the people of Palestine. As the City Council finished its opening presentations and roll call, Reverend Annie Chambers announced that the PPA demanded to be heard regarding the ongoing Zionist genocide in Gaza. 

At that point, four other activists read a statement demanding that the Council end its complicity with genocide and pass a resolution that completely divests the city of Baltimore from the Zionist state and all “Israeli” weapons or technology companies. The demonstrators chanted in support of Palestine until the Council was forced to take a recess. 

The demonstration made clear that these corporate politicians will have no peace until they take action to stand with Gaza.
