Large crowds turned out in Cardiff to show solidarity with Palestinians in Gaza and across the occupied territories

Following the ceasefire between Palestinian resistance groups and Israel, the people of Wales have been demonstrating their solidarity with the long-suffering Palestinian people.

Hundreds of people gathered at Cardiff city center on Saturday afternoon (May 22) as part of a national demonstration for Palestine.

The marchers called for a “free Palestine” following the latest 11-day conflict between Palestinian resistance groups and the Zionist regime, in which by most credible accounts the former emerged victorious.

People also carried placards emblazoned with the words “End Israeli state terror” and “Save Palestine, Save Gaza”.

The protest march was organized by the Cardiff Palestine Solidarity Campaign and it took place outside BBC Cymru Wales’ offices.

Mohammed Hadia, one of the organizers told the large crowd: “Media outlets like the BBC have manipulated the truth. Today you guys are sending out a clear message - we are the voices of the truth. From now on, we are the media. Make sure you are sharing, writing and educating, fight [sic] for Palestine on social media".

As various campaigners and speakers delivered speeches, the enthusiastic crowd responded positively by chanting "One, two, three, four, occupation no more, five, six, seven, eight, Israel is a terrorist state".

Despite the peaceful nature of the protest, South Wales Police deployed 20 officers to secure and contain the event.
