Derby Ceasefire Now Protest January 27th 2024

Woah – there was a good turnout at the start of today’s protest, around 1pm. And the speakers, including Andrew Murray were great. But the best part is that the march around town at least tripled the number of people.

01 - Jan 27th Derby Ceasefire Protest

After yesterday’s ICJ ruling warning Israel to not commit genocide, I feel like even more ordinary people are feeling powerless in the wake of our government’s continued refusal to call for a ceasefire. It’s a simple demand that no human being should feel uncertain about: stop the fighting, stop the bloodshed and take care of those who need it.

The movement is not dying down or backing down. We can’t, not as long as innocent people in Gaza are still being attacked every day, enabled by our own government.
