Up to 100 demonstrators who ‘wreaked havoc’ in a Tesco store and attacked police officers in an apparent protest against its stocking of Israeli food are being sought by police.
Dozens of protestors gathered outside the supermarket in Hodge Hill, Birmingham, yesterday and could be heard calling on the chain to stop all trade with Israeli agricultural companies.
As the protest escalated, some demonstrators entered the premises and started hurling produce around and ‘getting aggressive’ – leaving both staff and shoppers traumatised.
It comes after a series of attacks on shops up and down the UK by protestors who are calling for Israeli produce and products to stop being sold in Britain.
A letter from an “ordinary middle-aged Londoner” expressing fears about growing anti-semitism in Britain has gone viral, with many taking to social media to express their own discomfort.
The letter from Stephen Spencer Ryde, sent to the Independent, has been retweeted more than 1,000 times since it was published on Friday.
