PRO-PALESTINIAN protesters are staging a sit-in at Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery calling for an immediate ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas war.

Arts Workers for Palestine Scotland gathered at the museum with placards and Palestine flags on Friday afternoon.

Police are on the scene, with no further guests being allowed into the museum and eye witness reports.

Some museum attendees had shouted at protesters as the demonstration led to the daily organ recital being cut short.

The group repeated the chants “Be free Palestine”, “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free”, and “Resistance is justified when the UK supports genocide.”

It comes after the group organised a sit-in at Glasgow Queen Street train station on Monday, and on Wednesday, demonstrators gathered outside the Scottish Parliament to read the names of “7028 murdered in Gaza”.

In a statement, the group stated: “We stand here today, reading aloud the names of the 7028 murdered in Gaza as a protest against the dehumanisation of the Palestinian people. 

“We know that many more have been brutally murdered since this list was released with the death toll now rising beyond 10,000 people. 

“As we bear witness to the ongoing genocide, ethnic cleansing, occupation, collective punishment, and humanitarian crises in Gaza enforced by the state of Israel and supported by Western governments, we urgently call on all Members of the Scottish Parliament to publicly join with the First Minister’s demand of an immediate ceasefire, and to apply pressure to their Westminster peers to do the same.”

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: "We are aware of the protest and officers are in attendance."
