Protesters burn American flag in front of Philadelphia City Hall on July 4

Pro-Palestine protesters repeatedly chanted “Down with America” and “Long live the Intifada” as they burned an American flag in front of City Hall.

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – In a significant and controversial event, Palestinian protesters burned American flags in front of Philadelphia City Hall on Independence Day, July 4, 2024. This event took place in the historic birthplace of the United States, where the Declaration of Independence was adopted on July 4, 1776.

Pro-Palestine protesters repeatedly chanted “Down with America” and “Long live the Intifada” as they burned an American flag in front of City Hall.

The incident has sparked strong reactions from several public figures. Marina Medvin commented: “Palestinian terrorist fanatics burn American flags in downtown Philadelphia on July 4. There is no more anti-American group on American soil right now than Palestinian supporters.”

Radio host Colin Dunlap weighed in, saying: “This was yesterday in Philadelphia. Look, in America you don’t have to wrap yourself in the American flag or wave it if you don’t want to. But if you set it on fire or desecrate it, you can get out. It’s that simple. I don’t need any more nuances.”

Influencer Oli London added: “Palestinian protesters show their hatred towards America by LIGHTING FIRE to American flags during Independence Day on July 4th in Philadelphia.”

The protest and flag burning have sparked a heated debate about the limits of free speech and expressions of dissent in the United States. The incident continues to generate much attention and debate on social media and in public forums.
