About 200 people gathered outside the Israeli embassy in London last Friday in solidarity with the Palestinian people.

The demonstration was part of the international launch of the Global March on Jerusalem, in solidarity with the yearly Palestinian Land Day demonstrations against land grabs and ethnic cleansing.

Speakers reminded the crowd of the plight of hunger strikers in Israeli jails, the continuing brutality of Israeli occupation and the importance of the boycott campaign.

People marched all over the world, including in Palestine. The highlight of the day was 60,000 demonstrators in Amman, Jordan.
