London, ALRAY - Thousands of pro-Palestine protesters on Saturday took part in a demonstration in London condemning the Israeli crimes against Palestinian people in occupied Palestine.
The protesters called for justice for veteran Palestinian journalist Shireen Abu Akleh who was shot dead by Israeli occupation forces during covering an Israeli army raid on the Jenin refugee camp.
Coinciding with the 74th anniversary of Palestinian Nakba Day, the demonstration was organized by several organizations, including Friends of Al Aqsa, Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Muslim Association of Britain, Palestinian Forum in Britain and Stop the War Coalition.
The protesters raised slogans condemning Israeli apartheid against the Palestinian people, chanted for a free Palestine, and called for an end to Israel’s illegal occupation.
The protesters also held keys symbolizing the homes from which the Palestinian people were ethnically cleansed by Israeli occupation forces during the Nakba Day in 1948.
