Fears are growing that members of the far-Right will clash with protesters during a pro-Palestinian march planned to take place on Armistice Day.
More than 70,000 people are expected to flock to central London on Saturday to protest against Israel‘s bombardment of Gaza – a few hours after a two-minutes silence will be held at the Cenotaph for those fallen service men and women.
The protest has led to calls for the demonstration against the conflict in the Middle East to be cancelled, with the Prime Minister’s spokesperson warning yesterday that the event was ‘proactive and disrespectful’.
Concern is now growing that the march will be confronted by members of the far right – with the English Defence League founder Tommy Robinson rallying on his likeminded peers to join him in the capital.

Pro-Palestine marches have been taking place each Saturday since the conflict between Israel and Hamas broke out on October 7 following the terrorist group’s deadly attack
It comes as Jonathan Hall KC, the independent reviewer of terror legislation, said there were concerns of ‘an extreme Right-wing terrorist backlash’ if Saturday’s demonstration against the conflict in the Middle East goes ahead.
His stark warning came as it emerged far-Right hooligan groups were planning to hold a counter demonstration to the Palestinian protest, after fears were raised some war memorials – such as the cenotaph – could be targeted.
