Pro-Palestinian protesters disrupted a Christmas fundraiser for blind children in Australia, raising Palestinian flags and shouting about Gaza.

The protesters were eventually removed by security. (Trending: Judge Announces Historic Ruling In Jeffrey Epstein Case)

The disruption sparked differing reactions, with some condemning the behavior and others expressing support.

The event is a crucial fundraiser for Vision Australia’s children’s services, supporting blind and low vision children.

“Well, it is the climate, isn’t it?” a host said.

“It’s OK, everybody, we are actually fine here. … Everyone’s allowed to have their … moment. … It’s a very hard time in this world … There’s a lot of pain out there that people are experiencing,” another said.

“No. This moment isn’t theirs,” conservative commentator Darren Grimes posted.

“This behavior will not ‘Free Palestine,’ it’s just shameful,” Hen Mazzig said.

Similar disruptions have occurred in the United States, with pro-Palestinian protesters confronting lawmakers and shutting down an interstate in support of Palestinians in Gaza.

“Carols by Candlelight is the largest annual fundraiser for Vision Australia’s children’s services, with all proceeds from the event supporting services for families and children who are blind or low vision,” the program’s description read.

“Your donations directly contribute to Vision Australia’s children services and Life Ready Program. This program is designed to encourage and support childhood development and the education of children and young people who are blind or have low vision, like Lucy, so they can form strong foundations for life, true meaningful participation and lifelong employment,” the Vision Australia website reads.
