Thousands of Palestine supporters march in London

LONDON (Ma'an) -- Almost 20,000 Palestine supporters from all over the UK marched Saturday from the prime minister's residence at Downing Street to the Israeli embassy where they observed a minute's silence for the innocent victims of Israel's bombardment of the Gaza Strip.

The pro-Palestine demonstration was the largest in recent history and reminiscent of the millions demonstrating against the war on Iraq.

"Speakers during the rally were shouting their anger, singers sang for Gaza, and there was a very moving minute of silence for Gaza during which many people sobbed," one of the protestors told Ma'an.

Helicopters, she added, did not deter anybody from speaking and "we will be back every Saturday for the foreseeable future; tens of thousands of us will not stop until Gaza's siege is lifted and Palestinians begin to taste freedom."
