Protesters have gathered in London and at almost 50 other locations across England and Wales over Israel’s war in Gaza, a day after Rishi Sunak said democracy was being targeted by extremists.

The Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) singled out Barclays for its day of action, with hundreds of people taking part in a demonstration outside the bank’s Tottenham Court Road branch in the centre of the capital.

The PSC called for a boycott of the British bank because it claims Barclays holds “substantial financial ties” with arms companies supplying weapons to Israel.

On Friday, speaking at a lectern outside Downing Street, the prime minister urged protesters to prevent extremists from infiltrating their ranks and warned of more stringent policing.

Mark Etkind shared a similar sentiment, adding that the UK government was acting against the wishes of most British people by not calling for a ceasefire.
