  • Description

    Saturday (15 May) was the 29th anniversary of the formation of Israel, and, in London, thousands of Arab students demonstrated in support of the Palestine Liberation Organisation, the PLO. They were also protesting at what they regard as the "seizure of Palestine from its Arab inhabitants".

    SYNOPSIS: The students gathered in Hyde Park before beginning a protest march. There, they were addressed by several speakers, including the leader of the PLO in London, Said Hammami.

    The United States has been extensively involved in trying to find a peaceful solution to the Middle East problem, but the London students reject the current moves. They severely criticise what they term the "conservative reactionary Arab states", such as Saudi Arabia, Syria and Jordan. The students say the present solution ideas concede nothing to aspirations of the Palestinian people. After their protest at the United States embassy, the students marched to Kensington Palace gardens, and the Israeli embassy.
