JEREMY Corbyn will attend a pro-Palestine demonstration in Oxford today (Sunday).

People will march through the city centre in solidarity with the people of Palestine.

Activist youth group Help The World Oxford (HTWO) are set to hold the demonstration at Bonn Square, starting at Manzil Way Gardens, from 2pm to 5 pm.

The London MP was confirmed as one of the speakers who will address participants marching for Palestinians resisting forced eviction from their homes in Sheikh Jarrah, east Jerusalem.

Organisers are asking people in Oxfordshire to lend their support online or in person.

The demonstration is building on the surge of stories coming from occupied Palestine about the ethnic cleansing of the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood, allowing Israeli settlers to move in.

An HTWO member said: "When the people of Sheikh Jarrah hurt, we as a community hurt with them. We can’t keep ignoring the Palestinian plight.

"This show of solidarity is essential in keeping the struggle alive."
