HUNDREDS turned out to demonstrate against the ongoing attacks on Gaza.

People flooded the streets of Brighton on Sunday as they marched with banners and placards to show solidarity for the Palestinians locked in conflict with Israel in the Middle East.

A large crowd assembled by the War Memorial on the Old Steine and listened to speeches, including one from Caroline Lucas, MP for Brighton Pavilion. Then the 400 people marched from the Palace Pier along the seafront.

Demonstrators also hung a 10 metre banner from the pier that read “stop arming Israel” to support a growing call for an embargo on arms sales to the country.

At the end of the route at the Peace Statue on the seafront the marchers scattered hundreds of red and white flowers, symbolising blood and peace, into the sea.

Marchers vowed that there will be further demonstrations this weekend.
