A rally at Newark City Hall Sunday afternoon called for an end to the Israeli bombardment in Gaza.
Dozens of demonstrators marched to Sen. Cory Booker's office to demand that he support an immediate ceasefire.
Activists said they want to put an end to the bombing of innocent Palestinians in Gaza.
It was not immediately clear if Booker responded to the calls for an immediate ceasefire.
The Gaza Health Ministry said the death toll among Palestinians passed 8,000, mostly women and minors, as Israeli tanks and infantry pursued what Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called a “second stage” in the war ignited by Hamas’ brutal Oct. 7 incursion. The toll is without precedent in decades of Israeli-Palestinian violence. Over 1,400 people have died on the Israeli side, mainly civilians killed during the initial attack, also an unprecedented figure.
