Hundreds of people, including families and children, gathered at the Manitoba legislative building on Monday for a pro-Palestinian rally.

Many at the rally held signs calling for an end to violence in Gaza, where more than 1,000 Palestinians and nearly 50 Israelis have been killed in clashes this month.

Many of those gathered in Winnipeg expressed anger at the federal Conservative government, which has come out in definitive support of Israel.

This is the third pro-Palestinian rally in the past three weeks in Winnipeg.
