Around 15,000 protestors marched through central London in solidarity with Palestine yesterday, with speakers calling for an end to the Israeli regime.

The Islamic Human Rights Commission, which organised the march, said record numbers attended the annual Al-Quds Day rally which took place weeks after Masjid Al Aqsa was attacked by Israeli forces.

They joined millions of other demonstrators engaging in similar action all across the globe, with the aim of empowering the Palestinian cause and condemning Zionism.

Protestors congregated at the Home Office before marching to Downing Street where a rally was held, and was addressed by speakers from different faith, non-faith and political backgrounds.

Speakers denounced the Israeli apartheid system and the ongoing oppression of the Palestinians.

Huda Ammori is the co-founder of Palestine Action, whose direct action protests forced the closure of several sites belonging to the Israeli arms manufacturer Elbit Systems in the UK.

She said: “Just a week or so ago we saw the Israeli military attack and arrest 400 Palestinians for praying at Al Aqsa Mosque during the holy month of Ramadan. They beat our brothers and sisters and then they attacked the people of Gaza, who even David Cameron… described as the world’s largest open air prison. It is one of the most densely populated areas on earth where the majority of the people are children, and the majority of people are refugees who have already been displaced from other parts of Palestine.”
