Shortly after 4 p.m. Oct. 29, several hundred people filled Congress Avenue marching south from the Texas State Capitol.
They spoke out against Israel's invasion of Gaza amid a growing death toll there and slammed the U.S. for its support of Israel.
- Israel expands Gaza ground operation as war enters 'next stage'
- Israel steps up air and ground attacks in Gaza, cuts off territory's communications
- Increase in harassment against Muslim, Jewish Americans reported since Hamas attacks
Protesters occupied about two city blocks as they moved towards the Congress Avenue bridge, forcing traffic to detour around the march.
A police barrier moved with the protest on either side and portions of Congress reopened once the marchers passed by.
