An emergency demo against the Israeli state killings on aid flotilla on Saturday 5 June 2010 which took place in London, called for an end to the siege of Gaza. It was called by Stop the War, CND, BMI and Viva Palestina.

Israeli commandos used lethal force when they intercepted an aid convoy in international waters heading for the Gaza strip, where over one million Palestinians are trapped behind an Israeli government blockade.
The killing of nine aid volunteers by the commandos has provoked angry demonstrations in Turkey, where the flotilla of ships set out from, and around the world.
The misnamed United Nations security council bowed to the US administration and refused to pass a resolution condemning the Israeli government and instead just called for an ’impartial investigation’ into the loss of lives.
Socialist Party members condemned the Israeli government outrage and participated in a 2,000 strong spontaneous protest in London against it, which marched from Whitehall to the Israeli embassy.
A large demonstration of several thousand protesters also marched through central Manchester.
