On may 22, 2021 hundreds of pro-Palestinian supporters joined the “Ongoing Nakba, Ongoing Resistance – Toronto March!” organized by the Palestinian Youth Movement (PYM – حركة الشباب الفلسطيني).
Before the event the organizers issued the follwing statement:
Toronto: Calling all families, communities, organizations, and friends of Palestine to join us on our march to protest Israeli settler colonialism and the horrific actions carried out by Israel against Palestinians in Jerusalem, the West bank, Gaza and throughout historic Palestine. On Saturday the 22nd of May, we will be marching in Toronto from Younge-Dundas Square to the Israeli consulate. Bring your Palestinian flags, your masks, and your Kufeyyeh’s and join us at Younge-Dundas square at 3:00PM EST… #FreePalestine #SaveSheikhJarrah #GazaUnderAttack #Palestine #فلسطين #انقذوحيالشيخ_جراح
At Younge-Dundas square the protesters chanted:
Viva Via Palestina, Viva Viva intifada
From the [Jordan] River to the [Mediterranean] Sea Palestine will be free
What a beautiful sound the rocket has (originally in Arabic)
[Rocket] made in Gaza
Free Free Palestine
During the 11 days of fighting in May 2021 between Israel and a coalition of Palestinian terrorist organizations led by Hamas and the Islamic Jihad, more than 4,000 rockets were fired at Israeli communities from the Palestinian Gaza Strip.
