This is London, not Tel-Aviv: demonstration against British Jewery

Far-right activists have held a demonstration in the heart of London’s Jewish community.

The protest, apparently against the Jewish neighbourhood watch group Shomrim, took place in Golders Green, north-west London, on Shabbat. Nine demonstrators unfurled a banner proclaiming that the area “is London, not Tel Aviv”.

Police were in attendance. No arrests were made.

The Community Security Trust said, although the demonstration was small, many people would find it shocking that it took place in the capital’s Jewish heartland.

Last year, a planned far-right rally at the same location was moved by police to a site in central London, after concerns about communal safety.

It is not yet known who these brave men & women are, or what group if any they are a part of.
