Summary


Police estimate 300,000 pro-Palestinian protesters calling for a Gaza ceasefire have marched in central London, in the biggest rally since the Israel-Gaza war began


  • More than 100 counter-protesters have been arrested including a large number in Pimlico, near the protest route, the Met Police says
  • Officers earlier faced aggression from some of the counter-protesters - who include some far-right groups - near the Cenotaph war memorial, police say
  • Video shows counter-protesters shoving police officers and chanting: "You're not English anymore"
  • At 11:00, hundreds of people gathered at the Cenotaph to observe two minutes of silence and commemorate the UK's war dead
  • About 2,000 officers have been deployed across the capital, and the Met had warned that policing the situation could be challenging

    From what I've read and listened to on the radio they were,  no arrests.

    150 arrested at Pro Hamas march, investigation into hate crimes also underway, don't hold your breath on that though.
      Played down of course by the legacy media.

    Stephen Flynn has come under pressure today after he was filmed refusing to sing the national anthem during the Remembrance Sunday commemorations at the Cenotaph.
    Meghan Gallacher, Scottish Tory deputy leader, said: “Stephen Flynn is entitled to his republican views, but as Westminster leader of the SNP he has a duty to show respect to our head of state and to all nations and anthems.


     Why would an SNP politician sing that? He's a republican.
