Denver City Council rejects Gaza ceasefire proclamation in tense meeting

1 min read

The Denver City Council on Monday rejected a proclamation that would have added Denver to the growing list of American cities that have called for a cease-fire in the Israel-Hamas war in Gaza.

That final vote — 8-4 — came via a hastily launched virtual meeting after council members vacated the council chamber at the Denver City and County Building following repeated disruptions of the meeting by pro-Palestinian demonstrators. Councilman Chris Hinds was unable to cast a vote due to issues logging into the online meeting.

A heated debate took place within and outside of council chambers as a proclamation calling for a ceasefire in Israel and Palestine was debated amongst council members and the public. The debate resulted in council members leaving the room, while voting remotely. The proportion failed 8-4. (Photo by AAron Ontiveroz/The Denver Post)
