Activists, politicians, artists and health workers call for action over violence in recent weeks that has killed more than 100 Palestinians including the nurse Razan al-Najjar last Friday
Since 30 March Palestinians in Gaza have been protesting – asserting their right to return to the homes from which their families were expelled or were forced to flee in 1948 and in 1967. They are also demonstrating against the appalling conditions caused by Israel’s illegal blockade of Gaza. In response, the Israeli government has instructed its troops to use live ammunition to fire on demonstrators, including children, resulting in the deaths of more than 100 and injuring over 13,000 Palestinians.
This Friday, Palestinians demonstrate again. Protests in solidarity with those demonstrating have taken place across the UK this week.
