Young Protester

(Toledo, OH) There were quite a few younger participants today in a Toledo protest against the Israeli war on Gaza. This young woman was with her parents and siblings this afternoon, braving the rain and cold to make her voice heard.

Approximately 150 people attended the rally, and the honking of passing vehicles occasionally bordered on the cacophonic.

Some folks are against the idea of parents bringing children to protests, but I have always supported this. Such participation teaches civic responsibility, and encourages young people to speak out against injustice. I once attended a protest rally with a two-year-old toddler of mine in tow.
