Trade unionists and workers have been invited to gather outside the High Court in Glasgow at 12.40pm with the Workers for Palestine bloc ahead of the start of the march.

Last weekend, thousands packed into Buchanan Street in support of Palestine as speakers including the SNP’s depute leader Keith Brown and eight-year-old Jeewan Wadi, who was born in Gaza in 2014, addressed marchers.

There is also set to be a Stop the War demonstration held outside the Scottish Parliament on Tuesday at 1pm when a debate is to be held on calling for a ceasefire.

Communications systems in the Gaza Strip have been down for the past couple of days causing aid agencies to halt cross-border deliveries of humanitarian supplies amid warnings people could soon face starvation.

Israel has been pushing deeper into Gaza City, and its troops have been searching Gaza’s biggest hospital, Shifa, for traces of a Hamas command centre the military alleges is located under the building.

The war, now in its sixth week, was triggered by Hamas’ October 7 attack in southern Israel, in which the militants killed more than 1200 people, mostly civilians, and captured some 240 men, women and children.
