London, 6¬†Muharram 1437/19 October 2015 (MINA) – Thousands of people marched during the Palestine Solidarity Campaign’s demonstration in London in support of the Palestinian people in front of the Israeli embassy on Saturday, the campaign said.

The campaign said that more than 3000 protesters from all sectors of society, including many Jewish supporters, chanted “free free Palestine” and marched in front of the Israeli embassy, Ma’an News Agency quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.

The Participants condemned Israel’s daily violations against Palestinians and Israel’s “policy if extrajudicial killings of Palestinians” who could have otherwise been arrested and brought in front of a court, the campaign said.

Speakers at the march proclaimed their support for the Palestinian people and said they would continue their support until Palestinians were granted their rights, including Palestinian refugees’ “right of return,” which is supported by international law.

Last year, during Israel’s offensive on the Gaza, tens of thousands of pro-Palestinian demonstrators marched through central London during multiple marches, demanding Britain take a tougher line against Israel over its military assault on the Strip.

The Palestinian Solidarity Campaign said at the time, that 150,000 people attended one of such marches, which was the third major demonstration for Gaza in London that month.(T/P008/R03)
