Video shows hundreds of thousands of pro-Palestinian protesters marching through London, as the Met Police warn of ‘fear and uncertainty’ in Jewish communities.

The event, organised by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC), began at Parliament Square at noon yesterday (Saturday 27).

Arrests were made

Two men were arrested during the march, according to the Metropolitan Police. One of the men was taken into custody for carrying a swastika emblazoned placard, shortly before the PSC march set off from Parliament Square. The other was for allegedly making racist remarks towards counter-protesters.

The demonstration was to call for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza. There was also a simultaneous static demonstration organised by pro-Israel group Enough is Enough, which took place along the route of the pro-Palestinian march.
