Around 5.000 protested opposite Downing Street today to call for end of siege of Gaza
Around 5.000 protested opposite Downing Street in London on Satrurday, residence of Prime Minister Gordon Brown, calling for Israel’s brutal illegal siege of Gaza to be immediately lifted.
They were joined by doctors and medical staff who handed in a letter to Gordon Brown MP, highlighting the fate of more than 70 Gazans who have died as a direct result of being denied access to medical treatment by the Israeli authorities.
Comedian Alexei Sayle, MPs including Jeremy Corbyn and George Galloway, as well as representatives of national Trade Unions, including the UCU, NUT, PCS, UNISON and CWU joined the protest.
The protest was called by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, the British Muslim Initiative, the Palestinian Return Centre, the Palestinian Forum in Britain, Friends of Al Aqsa, Stop the War Coalition, Jews for Justice for Palestinians and others, and was part of a series of protests around the country in the past few days.
A further protest is planned to take place on the 9th of February.
