9 August 2014: The biggest ever UK demonstration for Gaza
Saturday 9 August saw the biggest ever demonstration for Gaza in the UK, 150,000 marched from BBC Broadcasting House to Hyde Park, passing the US Embassy on the way.
So many people turned up that when the front of the march reached Hyde Park, the back still had not left the BBC. The march was to call to an end to Israel’s barbaric assault on Gaza, to call on the British government to implement an immediate embargo on arms sales to Israel, and to show Palestinians facing Israel’s war crimes that they are not alone.
