Islamabad: In a powerful demonstration of unity, the Civil Society in Islamabad organized a rally from D-Chowk to the Parliament, led by Maria B, to express solidarity with the Palestinians.

The speakers emphasized the need for Pakistan to actively address the responsibility of governments and political leaders in preventing the ongoing crisis.
Maria B, Hamira Mushtaq, Javeria Sadiq, and other speakers passionately called for a complete boycott of Israeli products. They appealed to the entire Pakistani nation to join the global movement against Israeli goods, asserting that the power to boycott lies within the hands of the people.
During the rally, emotional scenes unfolded as Palestinian students actively participated in the demonstration. Their passionate chants and expressions added a heartfelt dimension to the event, emphasizing the urgency of the situation in Gaza.
The Solidarity Rally not only symbolized support for the Palestinian cause but also urged concrete actions to address the ongoing crisis, both on a national and international level.
