A peaceful protest was held Sunday afternoon, Nov. 26, on the Oxford Square.

“March for Gaza” was posted on fliers as approximately 100 people gathered in front of city hall under cloudy skies and with temperatures dipping into the low 50s.

The city’s permanent U.S. flag and seasonal Christmas trees provided a jumbled backdrop.
