People clutching candles lined the steps of Adelaide’s Parliament house on Tuesday night, the eve of United Nations International Day of Solidarity for Palestinian People.
A vigil was held in contemplative unity for people in Palestine and Gaza as many gathered in an outpouring of grief to share words and prayers.
Australian Friends of Palestine Association Chairperson Christa Christaki said these events are important to bring members of the community together as well as broaden awareness of the situation.
Speaking at the vigil, Light MP, Tony Piccolo said a motion of solidarity for the Palestinian people would be put in the South Australian House of Assembly.
