Hundreds of Montrealers hit the streets again Friday night, protesting against the recent Israeli military action in Gaza.
Starting from Place Emilie Gamlin and marching three different loops throughout Montreals downtown, protestors occasionally lie down in busy intersections.
Organizers say blocking traffic temporaily is intended to demonstrate that while Canadians enjoy their Friday evening, many Palestinians are fleeing for their lives.
For 6 hours straight protestors march and chant pro-palestinian slogans in solidarity with those fallen in the recent conflict.
Some are ashamed of the Canadian government for their un-critical support of Israel.
Demonstrator Kevin Lo says he feels betrayed by a government too cowardly to defend Palestinians on the international stage.
"I think we're not being respresented by any political party here on what is really, in terms of ineternational law, completely disgusting and completely wrong." says Lo
Demonstrators intend to talk with their wallets, by boycotting a list of companies like McDonalds, Coca Cola, and Starbucks that they say support Israeli interests.
Protestor Ahmed Hamed is of Palestinian decent, he says that Harpers support for Israel is contrary to Canada's reputation of being a nation that protects international human rights.
"The Canadian government should take a step forward" he says "support democracy and support rights for everybody, support human rights."
The protest ended peacefully, and many protestors plan to boycott Israeli products at least until the conflict in Gaza comes to an end.
