Join the demonstration – message from Tony Benn

Tony Benn

Tony Benn

“The Israeli Government, armed and supported by President Bush, with its savage attack on the people of Gaza now represents the greatest threat to security in the Middle East and the world peace movement is mobilizing on a massive scale to defeat this aggression.
I appeal to everyone who can possibly do so to attend the many demonstrations that are being held here so that the British government is left in no doubt as to the strength of opposition there is to this war. ”

Cllr Salma Yaqoob and Richard Burden MP join city protests against Israeli aggression

Anti-Israel aggression protest at the Bullring, Birmingham

Over 700 demonstrators attended an anti-Israel aggression protest at the Bullring, Birmingham

Respect Party councillor Salma Yaqoob joined Labour MP Richard Burden and hundreds of protesters in central Birmingham last night in protest at the Israeli bombing of the Gaza Strip.

Up to 700 placard-waving supporters called for a halt to the violence at the protest, during which an Israeli flag was burnt in front of hundreds of Christmas shoppers.

They chanted “free Palestine” and waved the state’s flag as well as holding aloft a bloodied doll to represent the deaths of children killed during three days of air strikes by Israeli jets.

Among the protesters was a relative of five young girls killed in an Israeli air strike in Gaza.
