Sunday, 7th June Daily Roundup
Here’s a quick summary of what has happened around the world over the last 24 hours, brought to you exclusively by British Herald.
The anti-racism protests in London led to “shocking and completely unacceptable” injury of fourteen police officers, according to London police chief Cressida Dick. Following a peaceful day of protests, a group of protesters clashed for a brief period of time with mounted police on Saturday. Anti-racism protests with thousands of people attending in London and other British cities “undoubtedly” increases the risk of COVID-19 cases going up again, according to British health minister Matt Hancock.
Several thousand Israelis demonstrated on Saturday against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s plan to extend sovereignty over parts of the occupied West Bank, de-facto annexation of land that the Palestinians seek for a state.
Protesting in face masks and keeping their distance from each other under coronavirus restrictions, they gathered under the banner “No to annexation, no to occupation, yes to peace and democracy”. Some waved Palestinian flags.
The protest was organised by left-wing groups and did not appear to be the start of a popular mass movement. Around half of Israelis support annexation, according to a recent opinion poll.
