Hundreds of health workers gathered in front of the government headquarters in Downing Street to peacefully protest and call for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza. The protest, organized by Health Workers for Palestine, began at Westminster Bridge and concluded with a speech in front of Downing Street. Many of the British health workers were in uniform and carried small coffins with the names of murdered children written on them. They shouted “cease fire now” and “we believe we will win” while holding up Palestinian flags and banners reading “Stop Israel’s Genocide in Gaza”. Similar silent processions were held at the same time in other cities across the world, including Toronto, Kuala Lumpur, San Diego, and others.
Additionally, the protest and vigil featured international support from other cities all over the world. Some of the cities included were Toronto, Kuala Lumpur, San Diego, Johannesburg, Paris, Calcutta, Belfast and Dublin. The health workers were not alone in this protest, as people all across the world have started to come forward and support. This form of silent protest has helped raise awareness and draw additional support for the conflict, with many cities joining in on the procession action.
