Pro-Palestine Activists Raise Palestinian Flag During Scotland’s Football Match

Glasgow (Palestine Online)- Pro-Palestine activists displayed the flag of Palestine during Saturday’s World Cup qualifier match in Glasgow against Israel’s national soccer team.

The activists were seen standing among the crowds while holding the flag of Palestine, in solidarity with the Palestinian people and against Manchester United’s Scott McTominay match against Israel’s national soccer team in the World Cup qualifier in Glascow on Saturday.

Many pro-Palestine demonstrators also took part yesterday in a protest outside Hampden in the rain ahead of the match, waving Palestine flags and holding up banners that read: “Zionism Is Racism” and “Don’t Play Ball With Israeli Apartheid.”

The demonstration was called for by Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC), who said “Israel is waging a war against Palestinian social life, including sports.”

The group also said that Israeli occupation snipers “have killed many promising young players as part of its ongoing shoot-to-maim and shoot-to-kill policy against demonstrators.”

They also added, “Palestinian football is not exempt from Israel’s brutal occupation apartheid regime.”
