Israel & palestine protests

A number of protests by both sides in the current conflict have taken place in Manchester and more are planned,one group has protested outside shops that have some form of link to Israel with the result such shops including other shops not involved in any way have lost business.
Everyone should have right to hold a peaceful protest but is it right that business should be targeted in this way ? Perhaps all protests should be restricted to a central area to get maximum publicity but the targeting of individuals or small shops or small businesses should be banned ?

Agre.... targeting individual small businesses in U.K. will do nothing to stop the stupidity of the Isreali and Palestine "government"... ha ha .. how can they stand up and justify chucking great bombs at each other, just because they don`t like the other`s religion... and they are killing civilians who really don`t know, or don`t care about that stuff... all they want to do is live a peaceful co-existance with each other, and their neighbours (Including their neighbouring country)... how come the "so called " polititians/leaders not understand that.?  Bigotry and bullying come to mind.
worse than kids in a playground.  Sad

Re: Israel & palestine protests

To go back to Gleneagle's serious concern, we have laws in this country controlling marches and demos. The police should ensure the law is enforced and citizens can go about their business in peace.
