London protests

From an e-mail I received today:

According to reports, ten people were arrested on 28 December 2008, after clashes with police in a London protest over raids in Gaza. Up to 4000 people reportedly joined the demonstration outside the Israeli embassy yesterday, and gathered with placards reading “End the Siege in Gaza ” and “Free Palestine.”

The Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC) is very concerned about the clashes in yesterday’s protests and would request any participant affected by or who witnessed these clashes to contact IHRC with their experience. By recording individual experience, IHRC would like to assess the severity of the situation and make official complaints about the police’s heavy-handed approach with the demonstrators.

The IHRC operates in a confidential manner and will keep private, unless given permission, all information that may be provided.

Please contact the office on 020 8904 4222 or email and
