London chaos looms as hundreds of thousands plan to join pro-Palestine march on ... trends now
Pro-Palestine activists are set to march through the streets of London at the same time the Festival of Remembrance is being held at the Royal Albert Hall next week.
Protesters have descended on the capital in support of Palestine over the past three Saturdays - and this is set to continue on November 11 which is Remembrance Day.
The main Remembrance Day events are taking place on the Sunday, including a parade at the Cenotaph and a service at Westminster Abbey, but the Festival of Remembrance will see two performances at the Royal Albert Hall at 2pm and 7pm on Saturday.
