A march and rally for Palestine has been organised to take place in Oxford this weekend.

The march will start at noon at Manzil Way as protesters march to Broad Street for a rally this Saturday (July 13).

It has been organised by Oxford Health Workers for Palestine, Oxford Palestine Solidarity Campaign and Parents for Palestine Oxford.

A statement from the organisers said: "Join us to march and rally to demand that our new Labour Government listens to our demands to stop arming Israel and to work for a ceasefire in Gaza.

"It is essential to keep pressure on our politicians.

"We need to let them know that we are not going away, and people in Oxford will keep tirelessly working for justice, peace and dignity for the Palestinians."

It comes as the Oxford Action for Palestine (OA4P) group disbanded its Gaza Solidarity encampment at the Radcliffe Camera following threats of legal action from Oxford University. 

The protest group had been protesting for 64 continuous days calling for the university to cut its financial ties with Israel.

Last month, Oxford University blocked access to a Pro-Palestine encampment to protect its property and for 'public safety' at the Museum of Natural History.
