Pro-Palestinian groups held a series of protest demonstrations across the United States on Wednesday against Israel’s plans to annex parts of the West Bank, an endeavor that the groups referred to as a “day of rage.”

In San Diego, protesters held a socially-distanced “car caravan,” traveling to honk outside several local government centers and Jewish community buildings. The Jewish facilities, including the local Jewish Federation, AIPAC headquarters and two local Hillel chapters, were empty because of the coronavirus pandemic.

In Washington, D.C., a protest organizer led around 200 people in a march from the Lincoln Memorial to the Capitol building, the Washington Examiner reported. Among the chants was “Israel, we know you, you murder children too,” followed by “Black Lives Matter” and “Palestinian lives matter.”

A livestream of a march in Brooklyn showed people chanting “intifada, intifada” - a reference to two waves of Palestinian terrorism that led to the deaths of around 800 Israeli civilians.
