Israel latest news: Hundreds of pro-Palestine protesters march to Keir Starmer’s office
Campaigners held up signs which read 'Starmer, shame on you'.
Hundreds of pro-Palestinian protesters have gathered outside Sir Keir Starmer’s constituency office in north London calling for a ceasefire in Gaza.
Crowds blocked the road in Camden and chanted ‘Keir Starmer’s a wasteman’ and ‘from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free’.
It comes as part of a day of national action on Saturday, with more than 100 rallies expected across the UK instead of a large march in central London.
Protesters met outside Chalk Farm station before working their way through Camden to the Labour leader’s constituency office.
Once there, protesters held up signs saying ‘Stop the war on Gaza’ and ‘Starmer, human rights lawyer? What a joke’ while others waved large Palestinian flags.
Others held placards saying ‘Who the f*** doesn’t vote for a ceasefire?’ and ‘Starmer shame on you’.
Earlier on Saturday, medical staff and patients at a key hospital in Gaza City were forced to evacuate by Israeli soldiers, according to doctors.
The IDF denied it had forced people out of the al-Shifa hospital, where its director said Israeli troops were now in ‘total control’ and that it’s ‘deserted’.
