Palestinian political factions are calling for a “million-man” demonstration on Friday to show solidarity with Jerusalem and demand an end to the decade-long Israeli/Egyptian blockade of the Gaza Strip.

More than 120 Palestinian demonstrators have been killed in eastern Gaza by Israeli army gunfire -- and thousands more injured -- since the rallies began more than two months ago.
