Braverman encouraged to resign after inciting violence at pro-Palestine demonstration

On Saturday, hundreds of thousands marched in solidarity with the Palestinian people. In what was described to be one of Britain's largest protests since 2003, many Londoners called out peacefully for a ceasefire. Although the week building up to the protest had tension bubbling at the surface around the Saturday protest falling on Armistice Day.

Armistice Day, widely recognized as Remembrance Day, is a day that commemorates the signing of the Armistice by the Allies of World War I and Germany. Many Britons believed that the protest held on the 11th would potentially disrupt the ceremony and the two-minute silence held on the day. These views were promoted heavily by Home Secretary Suella Braverman.

On the 6th of November 5 days before Armistice Day and the simultaneously occurring pro-Palestine protest, Braverman posted on X ‘The hate marchers need to understand that decent British people have had enough of these displays of thuggish intimidation and extremism.’ this was a post made in response to the Met police who urged organizers to postpone the demonstrations that coincide with remembrance weekend. The post by Braverman was ill-intended, likening the pro-Palestine demonstrations to ‘hate marches’ that exhibit ‘extremism’ is seen by many as deliberate instigation rooted in Islamophobia.

The pro-Palestine march had a hefty turnout of 300,000 according to the Met. There was even a two-minute silence observed by the demonstrators. For two minutes the chants settled. The Palestinian ambassador to the UK Husam Zumlot addressed the crowd ‘Today we remember those who lost their lives in war and we remember those who are still falling today.’

On the other side, Braverman seemed to have poked the right-wing bear as 92 counter-protesters had to be arrested to ‘prevent a breach of the peace’. There were also fights between the police and far-right crowds with National Scotland reporting that individuals from the crowd were shouting ‘England till I die’

Braverman is being called to answer for her sins and resign immediately many critiquing her dog whistle expressions. Humza Yousaf SNP leader posted on X ‘The far-right has been emboldened by the Home Secretary. She has spent her week fanning the flames of division. They are now attacking the Police on Armistice Day.’ The reaction from Saturday's events is calling for Braverman to step down. There has been no response from the Home secretary about the marches.
