Thousands call for immediate Gaza ceasefire during march in London

Thousands of people have gathered along Whitehall for a protest in support of Palestine which called for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

Those who marched from Russell Square to Parliament included children, parents, elderly and the disabled.

One speaker on stage estimated at least 150,000 people were there.

Various speakers, including the Palestinian ambassador to the UK, Husam Zomlot, gave speeches from a stage outside Parliament.

Mr Zomlot said: 鈥淚 am running out of words not only to describe the horror we are witnessing every single day, I am running out of words to help me understand how world leaders, how mainstream media cannot see, cannot report, cannot act.

He added: 鈥淚 know I can鈥檛 sleep, I know you can鈥檛 sleep.

鈥淲hy are those pictures not on your front page every day? How do world leaders justify the starving of 2.3 million people? How do they justify support for a state that is forcing 2.3 million people into death?鈥

He later said: 鈥淔riends, I am angry, yes I am angry. I fear for my children. I rage, I rage at the world they will grow up in.

鈥淏ut I also see hope… I see hope in the unbroken spirit of our people in Gaza.鈥

The Metropolitan Police said the Palestine Solidarity Campaign protest and the static Enough is Enough counter-protest ended by 5pm and people had left the area.
