Local Rally Planned for 18 November – weekly events

Families with children, trade unionists, members of faith communities and campaigners filled a coach to join the historic demonstration for Palestine in London on 11 November.

A huge march was marked by its humanity, the call for a ceasefire, and the open friendship and solidarity of people of all backgrounds and ages.

The local councillor, Giovanna Lewis, who joined the Dorset marchers, was overwhelmed.

It was a wonderful family friendly and safe march. We walked for over 3 hours and only covered a third of the march – There were just so many people – and so much kindness from people we’d never met before.”

Rob Ferguson, who helps organise the local campaign and a march steward, said:

This march is historic; this movement is reshaping politics in Britain. The polls show that 76% of the public support a ceasefire. Against this, a shameful majority of our political establishment have endorsed Israel’s attacks on hospitals, schools, shelters and civilians. These are war crimes.

Our peaceful march stood in stark contrast to that of the fascists and far right hooligans who desecrated the Cenotaph, shouting racist slogans and attacking police. They had been directly mobilised by the incitement and hate filled rhetoric of former Home Secretary, Suella Braverman. Yes sacked, but far too late”.
