Zionist aggression: protests in London, Paris and Zurich in support of Palestine
LONDON – Tens of thousands of people demonstrated on Saturday in support of the Palestinian people in London, Paris and several Swiss cities, while the Gaza Strip continues to be bombarded with an unprecedented intensity by the Zionist occupation army with air strikes.
On the 22nd day of the attack. Nearly 100,000 people marched in London on Saturday afternoon to demand an end to Zionist attacks against Palestinians in Gaza and the occupied West Bank, which have left at least 7,814 Palestinian martyrs and 21,693 injured.
The march which set off towards Whitehall, the street which leads to Downing Street, relentlessly chanted “Free Palestine”, with Palestinian flags and placards, which read: “Ghaza: stop the massacre ” or “stop the occupation”. Around 2:00 p.m., there were nearly 100,000 people, London police said.
In the French capital, thousands took part in a rally in support of the Palestinian people, shouting “Ghaza, Ghaza, Paris is with you!” and “It is humanity that is being assassinated, children of Gaza, children of Palestine”, according to several media.
“The emergency is the ceasefire, to stop killing women, children, men”, by the Zionist occupying forces, underlined on the spot the deputy mayor of Corbeil-Essonne, in the Paris region, Elsa Touré, while affirming that the Zionist entity “has been trampling on international law for years”.
In Marseille, in the south-east of France, a demonstration also brought together thousands of people according to media reports. Several Swiss cities have also witnessed major protests denouncing Zionist attacks against the Palestinian people. Demonstrations took place in Bern, Geneva, Lausanne, Zurich, Basel and Bellinzona, during which thousands of demonstrators demanded an immediate ceasefire and an end to the Zionist occupation of Palestinian lands and the apartheid policy pursued by the occupier.
They stressed denouncing “the massacre to which the Palestinian people are exposed in the Gaza Strip which must stop immediately”, calling on the international community to “act and not remain silent in the face of this genocide and these war crimes committed by the Zionist occupation army.
The occupying forces continued their aerial, maritime and artillery bombardments on Saturday on all areas of the Gaza Strip, according to the Palestinian news agency, Wafa, which speaks of “violent, intense and uninterrupted bombardments”.
In the wake of these Zionist crimes, the UN General Assembly adopted on Friday, by a large majority, a resolution calling for an “immediate humanitarian truce”. The non-binding resolution received 120 votes for, 14 against and 45 abstentions, among the 193 members of the UN, with applause.
