London protests for Gaza bombings anniversary

By Robyn Rosen, December 29, 2009

More than 600 protesters gathered outside the Israeli embassy to mark the year anniversary of Operation Cast Lead.

Representatives from 25 organisations, including Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC), the Green Party and Neturei Karta demonstrated in High Street Kensington on Sunday.

Politicians, Jeremy Corbyn, Martin Linton and Baroness Jenny Tonge were joined by Manuel Hassassian, the Palestinian Territories' diplomatic representative to the UK.

Baroness Tonge said: “The way Israel behaves is just not kosher. It is totally out of order and Jewish people should be totally ashamed of themselves that they are not doing more to stop them.”
