Thousands of Palestinian government workers rallied outside the cabinet building Tuesday, demanding they be paid their salaries, already three months overdue. "Until when?" read a sign carried by workers in the Ramallah protest. Others filled a large cooking pot with stones, to illustrate the workers' increasingly dire situation. The protest was organized by the Palestinian Authority Employees Union, an organization considered sympathetic to Fatah. It was the largest workers' protest since Hamas came to power in March.
