150 people hold peaceful protest for Gaza

March for Gaza victims held

March for Gaza victims held

First published in News

Pro-Palestinian campaigners marched in condemnation against Israel’s military conflict with the Middle Eastern state.

The Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) met at Brighton’s Clock Tower at 2pm on Saturday for a public protest against the “unbearable news” steaming from Gaza each day.

The protest saw scores of people carrying pro-Palestinian banners, flags and placards calling for the “freedom of the Palestinian people”.

Campaigners lay on the floor of Barclays bank in North Road in “blood-stained” sheets – a stunt which aimed to replicate dead bodies – in protest against claims Barclays’ invests in Israeli weapons manufacturers.

A member of the PSC said: “We also stopped outside Sainsbury’s, near Boots, in protest against the supermarket’s decision to still sell goods from illegal Israeli settlements. There’s a national pressure for Sainsbury’s to stop stocking the items as they make a big song and dance about their ethical trading policy – but are still happy to stock such items.” Sussex Police said 150 people protested peacefully and only one arrest was made for assault.

Time to start shopping at Sainsbury's again.

Israel will get its munitions from somewhere, thankfully, so pathetic protests like this one are a waste of time.

The next march must be toagaist the rockets fired indiscriminately at Israel by Hamas. This is a moral outrage & a criminal act.

Israel has the legal & moral right to defend itself. It does not target civilians, Hamas does.

We must also protest against our aid money being used to purchase rockets from Syria & Iran. Also the construction by Hamas os terror tunnels from Gaza into israel, at a cost of £ millions - our aid money !

Israel has almost completed the job of destroying the terror tunnels, allowing Israel civilians to return to their homes in Southern Israel.

However hamas still have 3,000 terror rockets left. Israeli civilians have 15 seconds to reach shelter when the siren goes. Millions of Israelis live in daily fear.

Hamas is a totalitarian group , who persecute gays, ban tfree trade unions & oppress women.

Israel doesn't target civilians? 1700 Palestinians killed by Israel, the overwhelming majority of whom were civilians. As opposed to what about 68 Israelis killed only two of whom were not soldiers. I think that shows clearly who is and who isn't targeting civilians. As usual Stevo!! uses Israels actions to act out his anti Muslim fantasies. Did you and Hursthill read the call for enacting a genocide against the Palestinians published by the Times of Israel? And Hursthill tries to represent Israel as being reasonable and rational? I don't think so. Israel won't stop the violence until the Palestinians have nothing left that they want. With the discovery of huge gas reserves in the area you can be sure Israel won't stop until they have stolen those reserves as well as whatever Palestinian land they want. Remember this is a country which deliberately made its greatest ally, America look stupid by its duplicitous behaviour during the most recent peace talks. Trying as ever to blame the Palestinians whilst continuing to officially endorse illegal settlements on Palestinian land. A move it knew doomed the talks to failure. Israel wants the rockets to stop so it can carry on dispossessing the Palestinians of their land and natural resources without any resistance.
If anyone one should be exercising their right to self defence, the casualty figures show that should be the Palestinians.

Hamas has harmed Palestinians, never mind Israel. The other day they executed 30 'suspected' collaborators. Never mind being found guilty of a crime, they were just accused of acting suspiciously. Add to that Hamas tying people to motorbikes and dragging through the streets. Hamas are the real enemy hear. But you wont see stories plastered over social media about the executions. This protest group are no doubt being paid for by Iran.

i don't understand what you guys are talking about?

if someone fires on you he shouldn't than go around and cry ohhh why did you shoot back.. .you are a war criminal... oh no you war criminal - look everyone - he shoot back at me!

are you guys insane?
maybe that sign in the demonstration should be STOP ARMING HAMAS... that makes more sense. maybe we should be angry at hamas and Qatar and Iran (which arms them)

don't get me wrong... it seems Israel did a lot to protect Innocent civilians (and let me tell you as a guy that served in Afghanistan on your behalf! yes you!... Notifying the enemy you about to hit an area is stupid.)

but maybe they could have done more... i always thought they should have asked the "un-involved" to come trough the border into a protected areas and away from the fighting.

but let me make it clear... no one can shout horrible Israel after they were shoot at for so long. this is just not logical and kinda idiotic.

now i hear this claim... 1700 civilians vs 68 soldiers
first of all that's wrong. its more like 53 soldiers, 15 civilians on the Israeli side.

it doesn't matter that Israel has a better army. we also killed much more people and also civilians in Afghanistan than they killed our brothers. so did america in Iraq... those are just the facts.

common problem:
you are fired upon from the top left window by a sniper. DEMM, you lost a friend!!! You going to cry with hes wife in hes funeral! our tank shoots at that spot and takes out the top floor. in the next room were a kid and hes mother.

who should we blame?
in many cases we lost guys because we knew there was a kid and a women there and just had to go around that but in many cases we didn't knew or couldn't go around and just took out the top floor.

i think you all suffer from a case of lets hate the Jewish... but why? don't really know... the Israelis and Jewish people i have met are really nice and didn't mind i believe in Jesus and not their fate, they don't scream i deserve but instead work hard for and all together they are a live and let live kind of people.

But that's beside the point.
The simple fact is that even after they were shoot at for 15 days
Israel PM offered a cease fire as is and before any troops went in
and hamas refused and simply continue firing at peoples homes.

i think you guys should hollering hate and stick to the facts.

Israel has the legal & moral right to defend itself. It does not target civilians, Hamas does.

We must also protest against our aid money being used to purchase rockets from Syria & Iran. Also the construction by Hamas os terror tunnels from Gaza into israel, at a cost of £ millions - our aid money !

Israel has almost completed the job of destroying the terror tunnels, allowing Israel civilians to return to their homes in Southern Israel.

However hamas still have 3,000 terror rockets left. Israeli civilians have 15 seconds to reach shelter when the siren goes. Millions of Israelis live in daily fear.

Hamas is a totalitarian group , who persecute gays, ban tfree trade unions & oppress women.
Israel doesn't target civilians? 1700 Palestinians killed by Israel, the overwhelming majority of whom were civilians. As opposed to what about 68 Israelis killed only two of whom were not soldiers. I think that shows clearly who is and who isn't targeting civilians. As usual Stevo!! uses Israels actions to act out his anti Muslim fantasies. Did you and Hursthill read the call for enacting a genocide against the Palestinians published by the Times of Israel? And Hursthill tries to represent Israel as being reasonable and rational? I don't think so. Israel won't stop the violence until the Palestinians have nothing left that they want. With the discovery of huge gas reserves in the area you can be sure Israel won't stop until they have stolen those reserves as well as whatever Palestinian land they want. Remember this is a country which deliberately made its greatest ally, America look stupid by its duplicitous behaviour during the most recent peace talks. Trying as ever to blame the Palestinians whilst continuing to officially endorse illegal settlements on Palestinian land. A move it knew doomed the talks to failure. Israel wants the rockets to stop so it can carry on dispossessing the Palestinians of their land and natural resources without any resistance.
If anyone one should be exercising their right to self defence, the casualty figures show that should be the Palestinians.
Collateral damage. We've seen it in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan etc. Civilians are used as human shields to try and protect military resources and propaganda devices when they get killed and injured. A casual observer would suggest that Hamas, ISIS, the Taliban hold human life very cheap indeed.

Their propaganda machine seems to have worked on you.

I believe Hamas were democratically elected? Surely people knew what they were getting into?

In what way is explaining what Hamas is up to a fantasy?

Choose your words carefully, because you know I love pointing out how stupid people are.
Oh the irony of thicko!! pointing out how stupid OTHER people are - you really are a complete tw@t!!
So you were unable to explain your own comment.

Isn't that the mark of a stupid person?

Hamas was elected to do away with Israel, so of course the Palestinians knew what to expect.

Shouldn't your carer be more attentive when you're posting? They are paid to prevent their charges looking stupid online.

Probably not a great deal as the conflict will end when Israel decides it will end.
