Shortly after the brutal Hamas attacks on Israel, there arose a ground swell of pro-Palestinian rallies across the world. This particular rally was held in Washington, D.C. and led straight to the White House as protesters called upon President Biden to push for an immediate cease fire and a cessation to any Israeli response which they view as genocide on the Palestinian people. The images reveal decades of anger, pain, heartache, resolve, and even exhaustion.
