As the Zionist death toll in Gaza mounts, on 19 July comrades from London Revolutionary Communist Group and supporters of our Victory to the Intifada campaign joined a massive, angry demonstration through London, called by the national Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Friends of Al Aqsa and other organisations.
We marched from Downing Street to the Israeli embassy, using our powerful mobile sound system as an open mic, which attracted many protesters to join our contingent, chanting slogans and making speeches about the unfurling atrocities. We also used the mic to focus on British support for Zionism, highlighting branches of Marks & Spencer, MacDonalds and HSBC (which underwrites the Israeli economy) along the way. And we booed loudly as we passed the French embassy in response to the French government’s blatant capitulation to Israeli genocide in Gaza, by banning pro-Palestinian demonstrations in Paris.
