Hundreds of Palestinians and their supporters in Toronto gathered on Sunday to protest a Jewish National Fund gala dinner featuring the Canadian prime minister, the JNF said in a press release.

According to the organization, the protesters stood outside of the venue hosting the dinner while carrying signs condemning Israel’s “policy of apartheid” as well as the JNF’s land policies in the Negev.

Police on horseback were deployed in order to keep the peace, according to JNF, with thousands of other protesters prevented access to the main street adjacent to the event.
