Last Sunday, about 800 people gathered in front of the UN building in Geneva to raise their voices for the freedom of Israeli hostages held by Hamas.
They gathered at the Place des Nations, in the heart of Geneva’s UN district, at the invitation of the Voice for Freedom Coalition, an alliance of Zionist and Christian organizations, to call for the release of the Gaza hostages. Several relatives of the abductees were present and told the moving stories of their sons and daughters still in captivity.
In a speech, @JobstBittner founder and president of March for Life, asked, “I wonder how we can credibly stand with Israel and the relatives of the victims when silence and indifference are already booming loudly after Hamas’ brutal attack. With these words, he illustrated the importance of fighting against indifference and silence.
“Every form of anti-Semitism and hatred of Jews begins with indifference and silence!” This powerful appeal was received with great applause by the demonstrators who, together with guests from the USA and Israel, demanded the immediate and unconditional release of the hostages.
Among Israeli flags and the “Broken Chair” in front of the Palace of the League of Nations, many participants held up signs showing the faces of the missing. A loud “Free them now” echoed through the streets of Geneva.
