South Korean activists, along with people from other parts of the world, rallied in Seoul on Saturday to protest against the ongoing Israeli genocide in Gaza.

During the rally, a British Jewish student condemned hegemonic power support for Israel and their policies toward the issue of Palestine.

Israel is an apartheid state created as a settler colonial project.

The US the UK and other Western powers aim is to destroy Palestinians and create another Western power in the Middle East.

Activists in Seoul held yet another forum on Friday, which was aimed at informing people about the Israeli atrocities as well as South Korea's role in fueling Israeli violence against Palestinians.

Even after Israel's Gaza attack began, after October 7th, weapons exports from South Korea to Israel continued, so we are clearly responsible since South Korea may be contributing to genocide.

Pro-Palestinian demonstrations large and small take place around the world amid Israeli threats to conduct a ground attack on Rafah where more than 1.3 million Palestinians are seeking refuge.

Those Palestinians are suffering from starvation amid the regime's crippling siege of Gaza and its relentless bombardment of the coastal sliver.

Many of these people have been demonstrating in solidarity with Palestinians each week for six months.

They believe that the spread of a greater understanding of Palestine and the occupation through their activism can generate international pressure and result in the end of Israel's genocide in Gaza.
