Duke Against War Protests Attacks on Gaza

Duke Against War gathered at Brightleaf Square in Durham on Saturday, January 3rd with about 300 other folks in the community to call for an immediate end to the attacks on Gaza. There were protesters crowded on all four corners of the intersection. We kept up lively chanting from about noon to 1pm and got a lot of honking in support from people driving by. The Durham Herald covered the Durham protest here.

After a meeting on Monday, we took a field trip to North Carolina State University in Raleigh to join the protest held along Hillsborough Street from 3-6pm. We were encouraged to see hundreds of young people come out. A brief video and article of the Raleigh protest can be found here.
