Students march towards office of London MP who voted against Gaza ceasefire

Students in London are marching towards the office of Rushanara Ali, a Labour member of parliament for the Bethnal Green area. 

The march comes after Ali voted against a ceasefire on Wednesday, saying “I want to see a ceasefire and I have been clear about this, but the reality is that this motion does not secure a ceasefire and would not lead towards one, which the people of Gaza urgently need,” she said in a statement.

The protesters carried Palestinian flags and chanted “Free Free Palestine, Israel is a terror state.”
