Dozens of people gathered again in Sheffield city centre to protest against the ongoing conflict in Gaza.

The demonstration involved people of all ages and ethnic backgrounds, outside the Town Hall on Saturday.

It was the latest protest organised in recent weeks by The Sheffield Palestine Solidarity Campaign, over the attacks on Palestine from neighbouring Israel.

During the protest, people wearing cloaks stained with red to represent blood lay on the ground, and crowds held a huge Palestinian flag, waved placards, and sang together to raise awareness.

The ‘die-in’ was to highlight the death toll in Gaza, which has reached at least 1,900 Palestinians, mainly civilians, and about 100 Israelis, nearly all soldiers.
