PHOTOS: Pro-Palestine Protest in Downtown St. Louis on Christmas Eve

Protesters gathered at the Old Courthouse for a pro-Palestine rally and march on Christmas Eve 2023 in Downtown St. Louis, MO. We started in front of the Old Courthouse, passed through Kiener Park Plaza, Ballpark Village and ended up at the St. Louis Gateway Arch Park grounds. The St. Louis City Police were wonderful as were the protester/guards in the yellow vests that walked with us to guide us as well.

People from many groups attended the protests including Voices of Palestine Network, AMP-Missouri, St. Louis Palestine Solidarity Committee – STL PSC and Party for Socialism and Liberation PSL.

Netanyahu did not stop bombing civilian men, women and children on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, which prompts so many questions. For example, am I a murderer since my taxes are being used to build bombs that end up blowing up children? Dose that make me a murderer? Yes. If I pay my taxes. We are all guilty of murdering children if we continue to fund the annihilation of Palestine. Humanity doesn’t exist anymore, it’s just a word that makes of feel better about ourselves.
