For the third Saturday in a row, pro-Palestine demonstrators packed the streets of central London to condemn the UK government’s unequivocal support for Israel, demanding the cessation of Israeli aggression in Gaza.
Our government is cheering this on and it’s supporting Israel to carry on with the massacre in Gaza. So we want to try and stop that.
Dr Ismail Patel, Friends of Al Aqsa
Despite government attempts to delegitimize it, support for Palestinians is on the rise with hundreds of thousands of people taking to the streets of central London to raise awareness of what’s happening in Gaza and to express solidarity with the Palestinians.
I’m so ashamed of our government, that they are sanctioning what I think is just collective murder and it really, really, has got to stop. It’s awful!
From Madrid to Milan and beyond, even in Germany, home to one of the largest Muslim communities in the EU, such protests have been restricted over what was described as anti-Semitism concerns.
They should be listening to the protesters and demanding that there’s an immediate and complete ceasefire that humanitarian aid is allowed through.
Public pressure in the UK capital seems to be working.
Sadiq Khan, London’s labor mayor, has become the latest politician to call for a ceasefire, breaking ranks with the party leader, Keir Starmer. Starmer has said Israel reserved the right to cut all supplies to Gaza.
They are paying [spending] our taxes to kill our brothers. So it’s unfair. It’s completely unfair.
250 high-ranking lawyers have written an open letter to the government urging it to stop arming Israel.
It should stop; we want cease fire, we want talking, negotiating, but, giving Palestine what it deserves having been bullied for 50, 60, 70, years.,
As the war on Gaza rages on there is no sign of the emotions letting up or the demands that so many in Britain and elsewhere are making for their leaders to find a political solution to the crisis being met.
