CHICAGO (WLS) -- A large protest was underway at Chicago's Union Station Thursday evening.
The group was calling for a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas.
Vowing it would not be business as usual, a coalition of pro-Palestinian groups and their supporters staged a protest in Union Station, as they demanded a ceasefire in Gaza and what they called an end to aggressions in the region.
The peaceful demonstration was happening in the Great Hall.
It was late Thursday afternoon, when a few hundred people gathered for the protest.
There, they waved Palestinian flags and vowed to keep demanding a ceasefire in Gaza.
Several demonstrations have taken place in Chicago and across the country over the weeks following the Israel-Hamas war.
Thursday's protest was led by a group called SJP Chicago.
There were about a dozen Chicago and Amtrak police officers in the area.
The protest did not appear to be causing any disruption to the afternoon commute.
