I Londonistan er kaffe-kæden Starbucks blevet kulturberiget.


Riot police surrounded up to 240 demonstrators in central London, many wearing scarves covering their faces, who broke away from a rally in Trafalgar Square at about 5pm.

The United States coffee chain has recently been the subject of an internet boycott campaign amid claims it donates profits to Israel – an accusation it strongly denies.

Commander Bob Broadhurst, in charge of public order policing for the Metropolitan Police, said: “Once again what we have witnessed in London today is a group of thugs, who are not interested in lawful protest, run through the streets smashing shops without care for the alarm they caused the public.

Police said the London rally was attended by 3,500 people while organisers of a rally in Birmingham said more than 5,000 turned up.

An Israeli flag was set alight at the rally outside Birmingham’s Council House in Victoria Square.

Abdulah Abdulah, 25, a clerk from Birmingham said: “The whole world knows this is something serious and the reason that people are angry is that they are getting more frustrated because nothing is being done.”
