(Gaza protests) Civic groups rally against IsraelLocal | 17 May 2018 4:25 pm
About fifty people from various civic groups have staged a protest outside the Israeli consulate in Hong Kong over the killing of dozens of Palestinians in Gaza, RTHK reports.
Au Lap-hang, the organizer of the protest, said the killing is a global humanitarian issue that all people should care about.
But he said the city can play a key role in this. "Hong Kong is one of the biggest trading partners with Israel. So if Hong Kong people want, they have a lot of ways to influence [the Israelis]," Au said.
The protesters then marched from the Israel Consulate to the US Embassy in Central to express their anger.
