Pro-Palestinian Rallies in London Call for Immediate Gaza Ceasefire

Pro-Palestinian Rallies in London Call for Immediate Gaza Ceasefire

Alwaght- Thousands of people marched through central London on Saturday to show solidarity with Palestine and to reiterate calls for a ceasefire in Gaza.

Protestors from different nationalities and religions poured into the streets of London for 22nd consecutive weeks, chanting slogans about justice, and calling for ending the apartheid system, as well as an immediate cessation of war and establishing a ceasefire in Gaza, IRNA correspondent in London reported on Saturday.

They first gathered in Hyde Park in central London and then marched to the US embassy in solidarity with the oppressed Palestinian people.

In addition to the Palestinian flag, the protesters held placards that read "Stop the occupation", "Free Palestine", and "Establish a ceasefire now".

Participants demonstrating within the framework of the National March initiative stressed that they will continue their protests as long as the killing of the oppressed and defenseless Palestinian people was underway.

Data show that some 80% of Brits are in support of an immediate ceasefire in Gaza. They are also angry at their government’s unwavering support for the Zionist regime.

Meanwhile, the British government is trying to delegitimize opposition to the Zionist regime and suppress support for the Palestinian people, to impose new restrictions under the pretext of countering extremism.

The British government, as one of the main supporters of the Zionist regime, ignores the killing of innocent and oppressed Palestinian people and opposes the establishment of a permanent ceasefire in Gaza, and believes that such a move will embolden the Palestinian resistance.

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak once claimed that a ceasefire will embolden the Palestinian resistance, saying a "sustainable ceasefire" is possible on the condition that Hamas stop rocket attacks and release Israeli captives held in Gaza.

The Zionist regime, with the backing of the West, the US in particular, launched its genocidal war on Gaza that has claimed over 31,000 Palestinian lives so far, mostly women and children.

The regime made the October 7 “Al-Aqsa Flood” operation by Hamas a pretext for its bloody campaign in Gaza. But the Palestinian resistance group says the anti-Israel operation was in response to decades of crimes committed by the Zionists in the besieged Gaza Strip and the occupied West Bank.
