Civil society groups are planning to hold a pro-Palestine march in London on Saturday, May 11. The National Demonstration for Palestine will be held at 12:00 (local time) where protesters will march from Portland Place to Whitehall. Localized disruptions and a heightened security presence are likely.
The march is being held the weekend before Nakba Day, Wednesday, May 15, the annual commemoration of the exodus of Palestinians following the creation of Israel and during the 1948 Palestine War. An estimated 700,000 Palestinians fled or were expelled to other countries in this period.
Individuals in London are advised to monitor the situation, avoid public demonstrations as a precaution, and anticipate localized transportation disruptions and a heightened security presence.
