Pro-Palestine demonstrators target Marks & Spencer store

By Cate McCurry

Pro-Palestine demonstrators have targeted another supermarket and attempted to remove what they describe as Israeli-linked products from shelves.

A large group of activists surprised people doing their weekly shop as they stormed Marks & Spencer in Newry on Saturday.

The group of protesters from the Newry Palestine Support Group held placards and banners while calling for a boycott of Israeli goods.

A statement on the group's website said: "Today's protest has been a huge success and we have raised some much needed awareness to the situation in Gaza.

"This is not a one-off token protest, we are currently looking at other initiatives to partake in to support the besieged Palestinians in Gaza."
