Meet the 90-year old Jewish American woman protesting for Palestine

It is a cool Friday evening and Shatzi Weisberger is sitting on a plastic folding chair in Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn minutes before the start of a Shabbat rally, called by Jewish New Yorkers in protest at the continued US support of Israel's occupation of Palestinians.

Around her hundreds of people make their way into the plaza; some with toddlers in tow, others lean and stretch on the paving, drawing slogans on to posters or arranging last-minute banners just as the event "Rise up Shabbat" is about to begin.

Weisberger is well prepared. With a Palestinian Keffiyeh loosely draped around her neck, she clutches on to her walker with her right hand, and with her left, holds a placard that reads: "This 90-year-old Jew says Zionism is genocide!"
