Palestine supporters hold Manchester die-in

PALESTINE supporters staged a “die-in” outside an HSBC bank in Manchester on Saturday in protest at the murder of protesters in Gaza by Israeli soldiers.

Some wore blood-stained lab coats or press bibs in memory of paramedics and journalists killed by the Israeli military.

Manchester Palestine Solidarity Campaign and Manchester Palestine Action stage weekly protests outside the bank because it has investments in Elbit Systems, which makes drones used in Israel’s attacks on Palestinians.

Adie Mormech of Manchester Palestine Action said: “We wore blood-stained hospital lab coats and press shirts as a symbol of the many medics and journalists killed by Israeli snipers on the Great Return March in Gaza.

“These included 21-year-old Razan al-Najjar, a paramedic killed while assisting protesters who had been shot.

“There were huge crowds from the Manchester public who came to listen and there is definitely a sea-change of public awareness and support.”
