Pro-Palestine protests – level 3

24-10-2023 07:00

About 100,000 people gathered in central London to show their support for Palestine and call for an end to Israel’s bombardment of Gaza.

This demonstration followed a recent terror attack by Hamas and Israel’s response. Protesters held signs with slogans like ‘Freedom for Palestine’ and ‘Stop bombing Gaza’.

The Metropolitan police estimated that around 100,000 participants had joined the rally by 2 pm. They marched through central London, reaching Whitehall by 3 pm, and most of the crowd had dispersed by 5 pm. Ten arrests were made during the event, primarily related to offenses involving fireworks, public order, and assaulting an emergency service worker.

The gathering coincided with the opening of the Rafah border crossing, allowing limited humanitarian aid to enter Gaza. However, more aid is still needed for Gaza’s population, which has been facing severe hardship.

Difficult words: slogan (a short, easily remembered phrase), rally (a mass meeting of people making a protest), hardship (a condition that causes difficulty or suffering).
