Crowds of Protesters Call for Ceasefire During Marching in London

A pro-Palestine march in London reportedly drew thousands of people on Saturday, February 17, as police said a “significant number” of officers would be on duty in the area.

Video captured by Stephen Bell shows protesters marching in the streets near London’s St Clement Danes Church in support of a ceasefire on Saturday, many of them carrying Palestinian flags.

The Metropolitan police said they arrested one person “on suspicion of support for a proscribed organisation in relation to a placard.” Nine more people were arrested, six of whom were arrested for “assaulting an emergency worker” after police went to arrest a man for “inciting racial hatred,” police said.
