Dozens of protesters gathered in Washington DC, on Friday, demanding a ceasefire in Gaza, where thousands have been killed by Israel since early October.

Protesters met in front of Union Station, chanting slogans, carrying banners, and calling on the US government to stop economic aid to Israel.

US President Joe Biden and his administration are under increasing pressure for their stance on the war and unconditional support for Israel.

A similar rally was held at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, where pro-Palestinian protesters chanted slogans and waved flags during the demonstration.

Protesters gathered at Ruthven Hall, where the office of the University's president, Santa Ono, is located and chanted, "Ono, Ono, you can't hide, we charge you with genocide."

Local media reported that a smaller group of protesters demanded to speak with Ono, while they were escorted out by police.
