From the CT News Junkie story:
More than 40 people braved biting cold temperatures Friday afternoon to protest Israel’s offensive against Gaza’s Hamas rulers.It kind of bothers me that this event wasn't important enough for Connecticut's corporate media to cover. I don't know when it became OK for us to turn our backs on a people who are suffering at the hands of one of our allies, but it strikes me as simply very, very wrong.

Shouting “Gaza, Gaza don’t you cry. Palestine will never die,” the protesters waved a Palestinian flag as they paraded down Main Street for a meeting with US Rep. John Larson’s District Chief of Staff John Rossi.
Margaret P. Levy of West Hartford said the demonstration was planned several days ago, despite the freezing cold temperatures. “People are getting killed everyday. We don’t want it to be said we stood silent.”
About 12 of the protesters made their way up to Larson’s Main Street office a few blocks from where they started their protest and were ushered into a conference room where they discussed their strategy while they waited for Rossi to join them.
“It’s so hard to get our voices heard,” Liz Aaronsohn, the daughter of a Rabbi, said as she turned to the lone reporter in the room.
BTW, Liz Aaronsohn was that nice lady who I interviewed at the New Haven protest on another freezing cold day a couple weeks ago. Here's my video report with Liz's interview.
