Protests against Israel held in London
font size    

Thousands of demonstrators staged a protest on Sunday in London against Israel's strikes in Lebanon.

Ex-Labour member of Parliament Tony Benn told the demonstrators at Trafalgar Square that Israel had committed a "war crime ...with the support" of the UK and U.S. governments over the deaths of Lebanese civilians.

"As we talk, women and children are being killed in the Lebanon by bombs sold and given by the U.S. and passed through Britain airports with the support of the British government," he said.

"What we are witnessing is a war crime committed by Israel with the support of the American and the British governments -- that is the truth," he added.

The demonstration in London was organized by several groups, including the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Stop The War Coalition and the British Muslim Initiative, which also organized a protest on Sunday at Prestwick Airport near Glasgow, Scotland, against the refuelling of U.S. flights to Israel.

Meanwhile, a pro-Israeli rally called "Yes to Peace, No to Terror" was held in Albert Square, Manchester. Speaking at the rally, Ehud Goldwasser, The father of one of the Israeli soldiers captured by Hezbollah fighters, appealed for his son's safe return.
