A pro-Palestinian protest was held at Toronto’s Union Station during the morning commute Thursday as the Israel-Hamas conflict continues.

The protest, organized by the “Jews Say No to Genocide” coalition, took place at a very busy space in the station, where commuters get off the subway and walk into the concourse where there are shops and businesses.

Members with the Palestinian Youth Movement, and others, also participated in the protest.

Protesters also demanded a ceasefire in the Middle East conflict.

An apparent organizer led protesters through songs and chants.

Law enforcement was at the scene as well.

The protest was labelled as shutting down Union Station, but commuters were still able to get around the demonstration and there weren’t any transit delays reported.

The demonstrators began heading outside the station around 10 a.m. and the protest ended shortly after that.
