Tens of thousands of British residents have taken part in a major protest march in the nation’s capital of London against persisting Israeli assaults on Gazans.

The Saturday protest rally organized by Stop the War coalition took place amid renewed Israeli bombardment of the besieged Palestinian enclave following a three-day ceasefire that ended on Friday.

The pro-Palestinian protest march, described in local press reports as “peaceful and noisy” saw more than 20,000 protesters march past the US Embassy in London’s Grosvenor Square, concluding at Hyde Park with a huge rally.

Among the speakers at the rally were British Members of Parliament George Galloway and Diane Abbott.

The development came as the UK-based charity organization, Disasters Emergency Committee, announced on Saturday that their emergency fundraising appeal for people affected by Israeli onslaught on Gaza has raised £4.5 million in less than 24 hours.

More than 1,900 Palestinians, mostly civilians, have been killed and at least 10,000 injured in four weeks of Israeli aerial and ground assaults in the Gaza Strip.

This is while, conservative British Foreign Office Minister Baroness Sayeeda Warsi, who resigned from the government over its “morally indefensible” policy on Gaza, said arms export licenses to the Israeli regime should be suspended.

Also on Friday, Britain’s Labour Party increased pressure on the conservative government to suspend arms exports to the Israeli regime as shadow foreign secretary Douglas Alexander called for the publication of a Whitehall review of existing licenses.

Is Resisting Genocide a Human Right?

81 Notre Dame Law Review1275(2006). Conducting an in-depth study of the genocide in Darfur, Sudan, and also discussing other genocides, this article details the inadequacy of many of the international community’s response to genocides, such as “targeted sanctions” or international peacekeeping forces. Examining international legal authorities such as the Genocide Convention, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the International Court of Justice, the article demonstrates that groups which are being subjected to genocide have a legal right of self-defense. International treaties, Security Council arms embargoes, or national gun control laws cannot lawfully be enforced in a manner which prevents self-defense resistance to a genocide in progress, because under international law, the prohibition against any form of complicity in genocide takes legal precedence over lesser laws.

* The list of shuhada does not display, the numerous victims of the zionist occupation which are undocumented by media. Nor it displays the victims of the “silent onslaught” due to restrictions of movement, ability to go to hospitals for treatment or life saving surgery, due to lack of medication because of the blockades and so on. For example: The Slow Motion Genocide by the Siege on Gaza only, killed 600 patients since Gaza got under Israeli Siege.

Neither does this list, display the avoidable mortality. A clear and statistical factual evidence, about the number of deaths due to indecent ruling by occupation forces. For even an occupier has obligations under International Laws, Geneva Convention and the Hague regulations, which it is neglecting. These circumstances, together with deliberate policies of the occupier to neglect and even deny every basic human right, severes avoidable mortality which is totally silenced by media or reporting organisations. While in the Holocaust, 1 on 6 Jewish people directly died of deliberate neglect, so if we believe the facts over 1 million due to avoidable mortality, neither should these same circumstances be ignores which are ongoing in Palestine. For this report displays a avoidable morality of at least 0,5 million Palestinians.

How many more dead corpses of Palestinians does the international community need to see in order to act? How many more cruelties and violations of Human Rights, Regulations and International Law will be needed to intervene so this ongoing warcrime is being stopped once and for all.
