Speaking out against President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the official capital of Israel, approximately 200 people rallied in Daley Plaza on Dec. 7, WGN-TV reported.
Apparently, there was a brief skirmish that involved neo-Nazi counterprotestersbut the demonstrators made them depart. Pro-Palestine demonstrators then marched through the Loop to the Israeli consulate at Madison and Canal streets after the protest.
Among the protesters' concerns is that Trump's decision reverses U.S. Mideast policy and could deal a serious blow to an already fragile peace process.
