On August 9, as part of the Gaza Day of Rage, protesters again gathered in Seattle at 4th and Pine in downtown. The spirited demonstrators gathered at each corner of the intersection and chanted “1,2,3,4, we don’t want your bloody war, 5,6,7,8, Israel is a racist state!” and “When people are occupied, resistance is justified.”

At 1:30 PM, protesters marched around the block to Bartell Drugs, a locally owned chain, that is violating the boycott of Israel by selling Soda Stream products. A group of 15 people walked into the store and re-shelved the Soda Stream products. They exited the store chanting “We’ll be back! Stop selling Soda Stream!”

Another protest is scheduled for next Saturday, Aug. 16 from 12-2 pm at Westlake Park.
