A WAVE of protests against Israel’s attacks on Palestine is set to continue this weekend, with 25 demonstrations due to be held on Saturday alone.
Thousands attended an emergency rally outside Downing Street on Tuesday evening as Israel bombarded the Gaza Strip following its assault on worshippers at Jerusalem’s al-Aqsa mosque.
Gazans woke up today to mark the Eid al-Fitr religious holiday following another night of relentless Israeli bombing, with the resulting death toll rising to 84 including 17 children.
At least six Israelis have been killed in Hamas rocket fire.
Protests in Britain have urged the government hold Israel to account, and further rallies on Saturday, from Southampton to Aberdeen, will keep up the pressure.
In London, thousands are expected to march to the Israeli embassy.
Stop the War convener Lindsey German said: “These ongoing Israeli war crimes have the backing of both the US and the UK and as a result continue as the world looks on in horror.
“It’s up to us to keep demonstrating and keep hammering home that people will not sit back and tolerate Israel’s system of apartheid, which is now acknowledged by [NGO] Human Rights Watch and more exposed than ever.”
MPs have likewise pushed ministers to pressure Israel to stop its evictions in East Jerusalem and its air raids on Gaza.
But the response from the Tory government has been weak. Foreign Office minister James Cleverly told Sky News today that Israel has a “right to defend itself” and urged Hamas to cease firing rockets.
