The group took to the main concourse of the busy North London station

Free Palestine activists have staged a protest in St Pancras train station during Thursday's morning commute.

A group of Jewish demonstrators demanding an end of Israel's bombing of Gaza took to the main concourse of the busy North London station.

They took part in a morning pray service in support of Palestine and carried out a series of loud chants saying "not in our name".

Jewish anti-Zionists are involved in the demonstrations.

A user on social media described the scene as "emotionally charged".

One protestor wields a sign reading: "Jews say ceasefire now! None of us are free until Palestine is free".

Another sign reads: "Jews against genocide: An anti-Zionist Shacharit Siddur." - it is unclear if this is an organisation.

Signage laid out on the floor read: "Not in our name."

A demonstrator wearing a Kippur draped a flag around his shoulders, inscribed with the words "never again for anyone".

Some users praised the demonstrations, writing "respect to them", and another said: "Absolute solidarity with those taking part to call for PEACE."

Whilst others criticised the protestors, stating: "Why not go to a place of worship for prayer, so people trying to get to work or visit sick loved ones, etc can go about their business in peace.

"No common sense. Blocking everyone else go about their business is selfish and disrespectful. Those wishing to express their feelings can do so, but not at the detriment to everyone else," the user continued.

Protesters engulfed Liverpool Street station


The protest mirrors the demonstration that took place in London Liverpool Street Station on Tuesday.

Protesters staged a sit-down demonstration during rush hour at the major commuter station.

A huge swathe of people sparked chaos in the capital as they sat in Liverpool Street station, a point that connects the centre of the capital with northeast London.

People were heard chanting: “What do we want? Ceasefire. When do we want it? Now.”

The movement was arranged by SOAS Detainee Support (SDS) who warned the campaign would be taking place ahead of time.
