UK EVENT: Counter-demonstration to Pro-Israel Rally, Trafalgar Square, London, UK, 6th May 2002


An official counter-demonstration has been organised in response to the many requests from campaigners concerned about the provocative pro-Israel rally. The rally in support of Israel clearly heralds support of a state which has pursued genocidal policies against the indigenous peoples of the region over many years.

The counter demonstration will take place between Admiralty Arch (The Mall) and Trafalgar Square to coincide with and oppose the Zionist demonstration commencing at 2.00pm.

The majority of the funds to hold the demonstration in support of genocide and apartheid come from the United International Jewish Appeals Fund. The support of the British government of such atrocities is apparent from the Prime Minister Tony Blair’s presence at such an organisation’s annual fundraising event to launch an appeal, last year in January.

The rally comes in the wake of mass destruction and strong allegations of genocide in Jenin. Attempts to investigate the allegations of genocide have been obstructed continually by the Zionist state which claims it has nothing to hide. Indeed because of pressure from Israel and its allies it has forced the United Nations to abandon plans to conduct a fact-finding mission to investigate the allegations of genocide.

Indeed, events which led to Sharon’s election and events since then demonstrate that the Zionist state as a whole is not interested in justice and peace but only in consolidating and subjugating the indigenous Palestine population.

The counterdemonstration is open to all peoples of conscience regardless of their background to peacefully and loudly oppose the racism, genocide and oppression of Zionism.
