About 70 people walked from the University of Minnesota to Minneapolis City Hall and back today. The intent of the walk was to support the Palestinian people in their struggle for an independent state. Palestinians walking in the event were supported by fellow activists represented by a diverse mix of ethnicities and races. This tends to be a very emotional and often contentious issue among peoples in the Mideast and in the United States. The huge amount of American military aid poured into the region is seen by many as a complicating factor. This crowd was pressing for peaceful solutions.
