Little Social don't break the cultural boycott

Mayfair, London. Sat 14 Oct 2017



 Several people including one holding an Israeli flag were waiting outside the Little Social reatuarant when the

 protesters arrived to put up banners - including this one showing how Palestine has almost all been taken away

 from the Palestinians who have been denied the right to return to their homes.

 The protest was also watched by employees across the road in the related restuarant

 Police arrived and talked with the protesters who assured them they would do nothing illegal

 and they continued getting out flags and banners

 a few more arrived to put on a counter-protest. One assured me that everything the people protesting in support

 of Palestine said and had on their banners was lies, and tried to justify all of Israel's actions, including the attacks

 on Gaza. He tried to talk to the protesters but they told him they were not interested in hearing his lies.

 I told him how my friend had been attacked and how settlers stole the olives from the farm - and that Israel's attacks on
 Gaza were entirely disproportionate to the rocket attacks on Israel which he said provoked and claimed justified them,
 and that Israel should respect the United Nations resolutions. He continued to blame the Palestinians for everything.

 'Stand With The Oppressed - Boycott Apartheid Israel'
