Nearly 40 demonstrators gathered outside the 21c hotel downtown on Tuesday night to protest a fundraiser held inside by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, a pro-Israel lobbying organization.
The protest, organized by Louisville Jewish Voice for Peace, held signs supporting Palestinians and spoke against what they see as an effort by the committee in support of attacking Iran to disrupt its nuclear program.
