THOUSANDS of Palestine supporters staged national protests today and yesterday against attacks on Gaza and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visiting Downing Street.
The protest in central London was attended by supporters of Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC), Friends of Al Aqsa, Stop the War Coalition and War on Want.
Mr Netanyahu is visiting European heads of state urging them to abandon the international treaty on nuclear development with Iran.
PM Theresa May reportedly told him that she will not ditch the deal and that she was “concerned about the loss of Palestinian lives” in Gaza.
Yesterday, protests were part of a nationwide Day of Action in support of the Great Return March demonstrations being staged in Gaza, involving Palestinians in Gaza marching to the border fence.
Israeli forces have murdered more than 100 Gazans during the demonstrations, and injured around 13,000.
The dead include 21-years-old Palestinian medic Razan Al-Najjar who was shot while trying to assist the injured.
The Day of Action was organised by the PSC and War on Want. There were gatherings in Manchester where 60 supporters staged a rally, and in the Yorkshire Pennine town of Hebden Bridge.
