Immediately after Blinken began speaking, one of the audiences stood up and began shouting and cheering in front of those in the hall, where he could be heard saying: “Geneva Convention prohibits the bombing of densely populated areas,” along with “Stop supporting genocide,” before shouting: “Stop shooting.” Now… Save the children of Gaza” and other phrases.
Meanwhile, a number of attendees in the hall could be seen protesting by raising their hands that were dyed red as the man was led out of the hall.
Shortly afterward, another woman demonstrated during Blinken’s speech to chant and say, “The US supports a brutal massacre.” Then security guards took her out while she chanted, “All the world is calling for a ceasefire. The American people don’t want to support this brutal war. Stop the war. Stop this war.” Stop firing, stop funding this brutal massacre that Israel is committing against the people of Gaza,” she said.
