Crowds gather at the Brandenburg Gate and Sonnenallee

In response to the Israeli army’s attack on Rafah, people gathered in Berlin to protest the current state of affairs in Gaza. At the Brandenburg Gate, around 300 individuals launched chants and waved Palestinian flags. While there was an attempted physical attack on a press representative, the situation remained calm. Meanwhile, in Neuk├Âlln, a spontaneous meeting was confirmed by the police speaker with around 100 people on the corner of Pannierstrasse and Sonnenallee chanting “Free Palestine” and “Ceasefire Now.” Videos on social media also showed people spelling out “Rafah” with tea lights and chanting for an end to the Israeli occupation, labeling Israel as a terrorist state and demanding “Stop the Genocide” and “Free Palestine.” The protests are believed to be linked to the Israeli army’s attack on Rafah, which has caused an influx of people into Berlin protesting against the situation in Gaza and the conflict between Israel and Palestine. Videos on social media deemed the protest a success.
