Nigel Farage: Pro-Palestine march in London on 11 November ‘has to be blocked’


A planned march through London on Armistice Day by protesters who claim to support Palestinians in Gaza should be stopped, according to Nigel Farage.

The GB News presenter was commenting on calls by an activist group for a million people to march through London to protest against Israeli military action in Gaza.

He said: “I find it pretty extraordinary that there is a big pro-Palestine March, in fact demands from some for a million-strong march, to come through the centre of London on the 11th of November.

“I’ve said before, to great criticism, that I’ve worried in the past about a lot of people coming into Britain with whom we have no shared history and no shared culture, and this, I think, is a very good example of that.

“Should this march go ahead? And especially should it be allowed to go down Whitehall, past the Cenotaph? I think the answer just has to be ‘no’ – I think this march has to be blocked.”

He continued: “It’s not as if there’s a shortage of pro-Palestine marches. They’re taking place all the time and not just in London, but in many other cities as well. So I think this March should be blocked.

“Mayor Khan has said precious little about it. It’s interesting to see that in Germany, they really are taking a very different approach.

“I was astonished to see the vice chancellor, Robert Habeck, who is a Green, saying that what was happening on the streets of Berlin was unacceptable and that there would be tough consequences.”

“Four thousand people so far have been arrested on the streets of Germany.”

He added: “I think for historical, for cultural, for national reasons, we should not allow a march past the Cenotaph on Armistice Day, and I feel actually very, very strongly about that.”
