Cynthia Nixon, who became widely known for her role in the series “Sex and the City” was outside the White House with a group of activists who have gone on a hunger strike to show their support for the people of Gaza.

The popular actressaccording to the times of israel, says the protest is against the high death toll in Gaza from Israeli strikes — exceeding the number of civilians killed in the US war in Afghanistan — and claims that Gaza is on the brink of starvation.

“We are here, as hunger strikers, to show Biden the kind of deprivation that is happening in Gaza and how he himself can achieve a ceasefire.”he told reporters.

As the Times of Israel notes, the group of activists are protesting despite the current temporary ceasefire in the region, which has allowed the release of some of the hostages held by Hamas and the increased flow of aid to Gaza.
