Downing Street Protest Against Israel, Held Saturday, July 8
Londoners refusing to remain quiet in the face of Israeli war crimes and occupation. The protest is taking place on the second anniversary of the Israeli assault upon Gaza known as “Operation Protective Edge.” The 51-day attack, which began on July 8, 2014, resulted in the deaths of more than 2,100 Palestinians, including 448 children.
