Last Saturday, March 2, a group of 10 Fordham students participated in the Gaza 5K on the Global Day of Action for Palestine, organized by activist groups the People’s Forum and the Palestinian Youth Movement. New York City hosted both a 5K run and a march in support of Palestine. This day of action was to put as much pressure on people in power to call for a ceasefire before March 10, the start of Ramadan, a holy month in which Muslims fast, allowing for more humanitarian aid into Gaza.
