HUNDREDS of protesters marched through High Wycombe town centre today as they voiced their dismay over the ongoing violence in Gaza.

The numbers of supporters grew throughout the afternoon with more than 300 people estimated to have joined in the campaigner’s parade.

There was a big police presence in Frogmoor, where the group met to carry out a peaceful protest in the town centre.

It appeared no trouble was caused on the day as many voiced their anger against the ‘British Government’s silence’ on the ongoing violence in Gaza.

As well as the march along the high street, many called for changes to be made during rallying speeches at 12pm.

Organisers said there would have been even more support in the town, but two coach loads of supporters travelled to London for a protest in the capital.

There were other protests in Milton Keynes and two in Oxford today, with another expected in Aylesbury tomorrow.

One of the main organisers, Zahir, from High Wycombe, said: “I think today was a huge success, we decided to hold this parade to get the message out.

“It must have worked when we had so many people here, marching through the streets. We have also arranged for a meeting with Steve Baker (MP for High Wycombe) to discuss the issues.

“One thing we wanted to get across is this is not a race issue, it is a humanitarian issue and we all need to do something about it.

“As well as raising awareness we have also raised some money to donate to people who need it out there.

“The turnout was amazing here, there were lots of people and to march on the high street was something which would have further boosted awareness.

“We would have had even more people here today but many went off to London to join in a larger protest.”

Saqib Deshmukh, one of the lead protesters, pictured with the megaphone in the march, said it was good to see so many supporters.

He said: “This went really well, people need to be made aware of the issues in Gaza and Palestine and hopefully with so many people joining in events like this people will get the message.”

Organisers also thanked Thames Valley Police in their help in allowing a peaceful protest in the town.

Chief Inspector Colin Seaton, Deputy Local Police Area Commander for High Wycombe, earlier said it is the right of people to protest in a peaceful manner and so we are helping to facilitate that.

Let me start by saying that what is happening in Gazza is a tragedy,but it seems that many people are ill informed or just biased in their views.

hamas are sending thousands of rockets into Israel from populated areas,telling residents not to leave,hoping for an Israeli retaliation,which will result in innocent deaths,while the hamas leaders are hiding low below ground or in other countries.

The Palestinians are surrounded on 3 sides by Israel,Egypt and Jordon but Egypt and Jordon's borders are permanently closed because they don't want anything to do with them because of hamas. If the muslim people of the middle east really cared about the Palestinian people the violence could be stopped immediately.

What are Israel to do ?

An interesting point of view and not far from the truth. The area was mainly christen and jewish until the invasion by The Hamid who were muslim's, ever since both Jews and Arabs (Hamas) have waged war. If Hamas called a halt which most Palestinians want then they could live side by side, equally if the Israeli's stopped launching unjustified attacks on innocent Palestinians then peace is achievable.
This would require the all too powerful American Jew to cease controlling politicians which is where the problem lays.

No people should have to live under a military occupation for 60 years, with no rights or freedoms. For those not familiar with the situation, Palastinians live under Isreali rule, but do not have the same rights to water, rights to travel, use certain roads, rights to education or health care or social services as Isrealis do. They often have their land confuscated and given to Jewish Isrealis they do not have papers to prove it is their land, usually because they have been living there for generations and Isreal will not isse them any papers.

This protest makes me sick... Gaza would not be suffering if Hamas hadn't fired rockets at Israel .. Islamic cowards who use the civilians of Gaza as human shields for their rockets.

Before any of you do gooders and ill informed nutcases start ranting ... think on this - the Arab nations tried to wipe Israel off of the map twice without any provocation from Israel .. she has a right to defend herself ... Simple fact if Hamas lay down their arms there will be peace. Long Live Israel !!!

Don't suppose we'll see the same people marching about the unreporting of persecuted Christians next week will we?

Didn't think so. This is plain muslim tribalism.
Well said couldn't agree more

the same Hamas rockets that are neutralized because the israelis have iron dome technology which was given to them by america yet israel bomb the most densely populated area in the world with there fighter jets and expect the palestinians to evacuate to where exactly are they meant to evacuate??? Israel didnt exist before 1948 israel is a state that has been created by the stealing of Palestinian land and who gave the Zionists the right to go to palestine and steal there land the UN. so long live israel i dont think so israel shouldnt even exist all that land is stolen from the palestinians. How would you react if someone came and stole your land and made you a refugee in your own country with no basic human rights would you bow down and let them persecute you?? Thought not.... Educate yourself before you start blurting out rubbish...

Ahh i though the tribal would react. You show your true colours with your comment that "Israel should not exist " Thus i suspect that you are either a Nazi or a Muslim. Actually both are rather comparable in my opinion - which i am entitled to as we live in a democracy. Great Western invention democracy isn't it..

Go get yourself educated you ignorant fool .. try free thinking ... the territories that you refer to were the Jewish kingdoms of Judah and Israel in 930 BC. This pre dates Islam and Christianity.

while you have a go at free thinking .. take a look at the suffering of the Christian Arabs who are persecuted by Hamas and the persecution of Christians in Syria ... hey perhaps you might organise a march for them ? .... Thought not.

You dont have to be muslim to care about palestine you just need to be human....

i think you will find that before 1948 the creation of your beloved Israel the muslims jews and christians all lived side by in peace in Palestine. When the Nazis were persecuting the jews who took the jews in and protected them the arab nations including the palestinians.. so if your going to start a history lesson you might also find that Orthodox Jews believe that the state of israel only belonged to the jews 2 thousand years ago as stated in the Torah when the glory of the there lord was with them and they will only gain this land back when the lord and ends there exile and rising from the exile itself is forbidden for jews. so therefore the Orthodox Jews are also protesting against the way the zionists are treating the Palestinians and for the record zionists are opposed to the faith of judaism and the torah Zionism is fairly new only about 100 years old... im guessing from your recent comments you yourself are a zionist so on that basis your a waste of time and space...

FREE FREE PALESTINE!!!!!

10% of Palestinians are christian, there are a lot of dead christians on the Palestinian side. There has never been any tension between Palestinian Muslims and Christians in modern history.
