Young people said they would not remain complicit in Israel's genocide in Gaza as they rallied as part of the national Student Strike for Palestine. Isaac Nellist reports.

City of Sydney residents, along with environmental groups, rallied outside Tanya Plibersek’s office in Redfern, demanding she remember her once held pro-Palestine position and speak up for a ceasefire now. Jim McIlroy and Clay report.

Families for Palestine started a round-the-clock peaceful protest outside Prime Minister Anthony Albanese’s electorate office in Marrickville. Rachel Evans reports.
