Germany: Thousands say "I love Palestine" at Palestinians in Europe Conference

Approximately 3,000 pro-Palestine supporters waved Palestinian flags, held banners and chanted slogans as they made their way into the 13th Palestinians in Europe Conference which kicked off at Berlin's Treptow Arena, Saturday. The attendees entered the conference holding a giant Palestinian flag and carried it around the venue before the day's events began. Around 60 protesters also took part in anti-Hamas demonstration in front of the Arena as the event was being held. Topics such as the situation of Palestinian refugees in Syria are high on the conference's agenda, which also includes the drafting of a declaration on Palestinian rights, such as the right of return. This year's conference was organised by the Palestinian Assembly in Germany, British-based Palestinian Return Centre and other Palestinian organisations in Europe. Before Berlin, the conference was also held in different cities across Europe, including London, Vienna, Copenhagen and Milan.
