CIOGC participated in a solidarity rally hosted by American Muslim’s for Palestine (AMP) on February 15 in front of Trump Tower in Chicago. The rally, which was planned in response to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to the White House brought together a large crowd to express solidarity with Palestinians, by protesting Israeli occupation, the siege on Gaza, and settlements in the West Bank. Dr. Mohammad Kaiseruddin spoke on behalf on CIOGC, and amped up the crowd by saying, that while Trump and Netanyahu share similar ideals, “millions of Americans are standing against it and saying we want justice.”
