Pro-Palestine protest LIVE: Thousands of protesters shut down London over Gaza strikes | UK | News

Thousands of pro-Palestine supporters have begun marching through central London, as they shut down the city while calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza. The march, organised by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC), started at Hyde Park Corner and will finish at the US Embassy in Nine Elms, south west London. There is currently a large Metropolitan Police presence at the scene. Celebrities have already been spotted among the protestors, including Welsh singer and Leftie Charlotte Church, who said: “I am here today to call for an immediate ceasefire, to ask our Government and governments all over the world to send as strong message as we possibly can. But a strong, a peaceful a loving message, that’s what every single march that I’ve been on for Palestine has been about.” It comes as tensions have risen in the UK capital over the previous weeks, with some areas now being declared “no-go areas” for Jewish residents of the city.
