Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailymail.co.uk: “Protesters march through Hyde Park in solidarity with Palestine”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Police were injured on Saturday in clashes with pro-Palestine protesters in London, as thousands marched through London's Hyde Park to the Israeli Embassy in solidarity with the people caught in ongoing conflict with Israel.

Huge crowds of demonstrators scaled buildings, climbed on the gates of Kensington palace, set off fireworks and clambered to the top of traffic lights outside the embassy in Kensington on Saturday. 

A video showed that some clashed with police, with one officer shown on the ground injured while another man was arrested. A separate video showed people throwing drinks at officers stationed at the palace gates. 

Writing on Twitter, the force said: 'Officers continue to engage with a small group of demonstrators who remain in central London. Two people were arrested and subsequently de-arrested. One officer is receiving treatment after suffering a head injury.'

Meanwhile, in Paris protesters defied a strict order against large gatherings to express their anger over the treatment of the Palestinian people. Riot police reacted with force, spraying desperate Parisians with water cannons to try to dispel the crowds.
