Pro-Palestinian demonstrators will not march through London en masse this weekend, despite taking to the streets during Armistice weekend, with critics saying it shows the “organisers’ contempt for the British way of life”.
The next large national march through central London will take place the following weekend, on November 25.
Instead of a large-scale march, over 100 smaller protests in towns, villages and cities will take place.
Speaking to GB News, Colonel Richard Kemp condemned activists for choosing to hold a 300,000 protest on Armistice Day instead of tomorrow.

He said: “I think it shows the organisers’ contempt for the British way of life and their willingness to cause disruption on Armistice Day in order to garner more publicity for their cause.”
The demonstration was the biggest in the UK since the Israel-Gaza war began on October 7.
“This Saturday, ordinary people across the UK will come out again to show the vast majority of them support a ceasefire,” said Ben Jamal, the director of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC).
“They will show their solidarity with Palestinians who are suffering unimaginable harm. They will also demand the root causes are not forgotten: Israel’s decades-long military occupation of Palestinian territories and its system of apartheid against Palestinians.”
The national march – organised by PSC, Stop the War, the Muslim Association of Britain, Friends of Al-Aqsa and others – will resume next weekend.
Organisers have said they will continue to march until a ceasefire has been called.
