Clashes broke out Wednesday when activists protesting Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu’s UK visit faced opposition from pro-Israel groups outside Downing Street, completely blocking traffic on Whitehall.
Police intervened to prevent verbal exchanges escalating, as a number of scuffles broke out.
The initial protest was organized by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) with the support of various groups including War on Want, Palestine Forum in Britain, Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND), Stop the War, and British Muslim Initiative, to oppose Netanyahu’s visit to the UK.
