Humza Yousaf calls on Suella Braverman to resign over protests

Humza Yousaf, Scotland's First Minister, has called for UK Home Secretary Suella Braverman's resignation following clashes between police and counter-protesters in London.

Braverman had accused the police of bias against right-wing marches and labeled pro-Palestinian demonstrators as "hate marchers," leading to widespread criticism and calls for her dismissal. Despite this, the Prime Minister expressed confidence in Braverman.

The Metropolitan Police faced aggression from counter-protesters during a two-minute silence in Whitehall, resulting in over 100 arrests. In contrast, peaceful pro-Palestinian marches occurred in various Scottish cities. The tension in London escalated when a crowd with St George flags clashed with police near the Cenotaph war memorial.

Yousaf accused Braverman of encouraging far-right protestors, deeming her position "untenable." The Scottish Green Party's justice spokeswoman, Maggie Chapman, also criticized Braverman, suggesting she should resign for her role in the unrest. Chapman blamed the Home Secretary for the "disgrace" caused and criticized the Prime Minister for not sacking her.
