Holding blank white banners, 500 French entertainment stars marched from the Arab World Institute to the Museum of Art and History of Judaism.

The stars were from a variety of cultures and backgrounds, they were joined by thousands of other protesters calling for peace in Gaza, the West Bank and Israel.

Last week more than 180,000 people across France, 100,000 of them in Paris, marched peacefully to protest rising antisemitism in the wake of Israel’s ongoing war against Hamas in Gaza.

Also, on Sunday in Finland a pro-Palestinian rally took place in the capital Helsinki.

The demonstrators demanded an end to the killing of Palestinians – Israel has killed over 11,000 Palestinian men, women and children so far, according to the Hamas-run health ministry in Gaza. Israel says 383 soldiers have died since the war began.

The protesters denounced Israel’s invasion of Gaza and Finland’s arms trade with Israel.
