3RD NATIONAL DEMONSTRATION FOR GAZA  
SATURDAY 24 JANUARY  
ISRAEL OUT OF GAZA NOW: LIFT THE BLOCKADE  
ASSEMBLE BBC BROADCASTING HOUSE  
PORTLAND PLACE, LONDON, W1A 1AA  
(Nearest tube Oxford Circus)  
MARCH TO TRAFALGAR SQUARE

 

With over 1100 killed, 350 of them children, and over 5500 injured, the suffering in Gaza is beyond catastrophic. Israel is ignoring the worldwide clamour for it to stop now and is escalating its attacks.

A third national demonstration against Israel’s barbarity and war crimes has been called for Saturday 24 January in London by Stop the War Coalition, Palestine Solidarity Campaign, British Muslim Association and many other organisations.

The demonstration will assemble at BBC Broadcasting House, Portland Place, London, as a response to the BBC’s largely one-sided coverage of the Gaza massacre, allowing Israeli spokespeople endless opportunities to propagate lies and deception without challenge.

We will march from the BBC to Trafalgar Square. Further details, including timings and route, will be available shortly.

Stop the War calls on all its local groups and supporters to start building now for what we need to make an even bigger demonstration than the 100,000 who protested on 10 January. Israel must be made to stop its carnage and we must show our solidarity with the people of Gaza suffering unimaginable atrocities.

Stop the War will publicise further details and updates by email and on our website, as we get them.
