Press Release

A Wave of Protest Is Sweeping the Country in Solidarity With Palestine

WASHINGTON -

Following Tuesday's Save Shiekh Jarrah - Free Palestine demonstration outside Downing Street, which saw thousands turn out in a spirit of outrage and defiance, the wave of protest sweeping the UK is continuing to grow.

From Southampton to Aberdeen, over 25 protests in solidarity with Palestine have been announced for this Saturday alone. These protests are being organised by Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Stop the War Coalition, Friends of al-Aqsa, Palestinian Forum in Britain and Muslim Association of Britain.

Stop the War Convenor, Lindsey German, said:
"Israel increasingly finds itself under a strengthening siege of public opinion from across the globe that rejects its blatant, brutal subjugation of the Palestinians. 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 Human Rights Watch and more exposed than ever."

Stop the War was founded in September 2001 in the weeks following 9/11, when George W. Bush announced the "war on terror". Stop the War has since been dedicated to preventing and ending the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and elsewhere. Stop the War opposes the British establishment’s disastrous addiction to war and its squandering of public resources on militarism. We have initiated many campaigns around these issues.
