Pro-Palestine mob chant ‘Labour Party, Zionist Party’ and hold racist banners as they stage rally in Westminster as Keir Starmer’s party officials meet


A pro-Palestinian mob holding racist banners claimed the Labour Party was ‘Zionist’ and ‘racist’ during a rally this evening.

Protesters chanted ‘Labour Party, Zionist Party’ and ‘Labour Party, Racist Party’ at the demonstration in Westminster.

The mob had reportedly followed Labour Party officials to the area and continued their protest while they had a meeting.

The protest comes after weeks of pro-Palestine demonstrations in the capital.

Many have marred by some demonstrators’ anti-Semitic chanting and signs.

One sign at the rally tonight said: ‘The coconuts are getting paid. Men, women and Gaza betrayed.’

Another said: ‘No votes for genocide supporters.’

It came as the Metropolitan Police was blasted after telling protesters in Trafalgar Square to stop waving Israeli flags because it is a ‘heritage site’ – despite the square playing host to several pro-Palestine rallies in recent weeks.

In a video shared online by the campaign group Eye on Antisemitism, the officer can be heard telling a protester to take the flag ‘off the wall’ in front of the National Gallery before he is then challenged by someone filming the exchange.

During the two-minute clip, the Met constable says: ‘You’re not meant to be here because this is a protected heritage site, so you need a licence to be here, to do what you’re doing.

‘You didn’t have one in the first place and we’ve been nice enough to let you be here, alright?’

The person filming claims during the clip that the officer ‘got jittery’ after someone shouted ‘Free Palestine’ – and points out that the square has been the site of many pro-Palestine rallies in the last two months.

Shaking his head, the constable replies: ‘Sir, I’m not arguing with you.’ He then claims he has asked people to take flags down in the past before he is then challenged by other observers.

The man filming then adds: ‘On Saturday there were thousands of Palestinian flags here. You got jittery over one Star of David, yeah. Two-tier policing, innit.’

He continues: ‘This is a heritage site he said, right? And that’s why you’re not allowed the flag up there. Did that stop the Palestinians from climbing up there Saturday and waving all their flags?’

The video has been watched more than 40,000 times and ‘liked’ more than 1,100 times on X, formerly Twitter, according to analytics provided by the website.

MailOnline has contacted Labour for comment.
