Palestine solidarity activists rally in Manchester against ethnic cleansing

PRO-PALESTINE activists gathered in Manchester on Saturday to protest against Israel’s latest annexation and occupation plans and repeated bombing of Gaza.

More than 30 activists turned out for a socially distanced protest at a busy road junction.

They received support from scores of passing motorists who sounded their horns.

The event was organised by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) and Palestine Action.

Manchester PSC chairwoman Norma Turner said: “We are opposed to the ethnic cleansing of Palestine.

“The latest annexation is just a continued extension of occupation and siege. We will not stop until Palestine is free.”

Palestine Action activist Adie Mormech said: “Gaza is being bombed again by Israel — for at least three days running this week — destroying agriculture, preventing fishing, blocking fuel reaching the hard-pressed people who are already without adequate water, sanitation, electricity, and all at a time of coronavirus. 

“We all know that Israel is guilty of war crimes — it is also guilty of crimes against health and humanity.”
