Pro-Palestine protests – level 1

24-10-2023 07:00

Around 100,000 people meet in central London. They want Israel to stop bombing Gaza.

This happens after a surprise attack by Hamas and Israel’s reaction to the attack. Protesters walk through central London. The protest starts at 2 pm. It takes about three hours. The police arrest ten people. These people use fireworks or make problems. They hurt emergency workers.

At the same time, the Rafah border crossing opens. It means that help can go into Gaza. People are suffering. They have little food and water. They need more help.

Difficult words: surprise (when someone does something what nobody expects), arrest (when police hold someone by force), suffer (to be in a very difficult situation).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What do you think could be done to help alleviate the suffering of people in Gaza?
