This demonstration has been called to protest against Israel’s recent onslaught on Gaza and its ongoing occupation and siege.
More than 10,000 people demonstrated outside the Israeli embassy, London, on 11th July, as Israeli assaults on Gaza continued and the death toll mounted.
Sarah Colborne, Director of Palestine Solidarity Campaign, said: ‘London has already shown its outrage at Israel’s attacks on the mostly refugee population of Gaza, with people turning out in their thousands last week.
‘Saturday’s national demonstration will give people from across the country the chance to say enough is enough, Israel’s siege of Gaza and its occupation of Palestinian land has to end now. People want justice and freedom for the Palestinians, and they will be voicing this in their thousands on Saturday.”
The National Demonstration for Gaza has been called by the following organisations:
Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Friends of Al-Aqsa, Stop the War Coalition, British Muslim Initiative, Palestinian Forum in Britain, Muslim Association of Britain, Islamic Forum in Europe, Israeli Coalition against House Demolitions (UK).
