Seven arrested at Scottish pro-Palestinian demos

Seven people were arrested during pro-Palestinian demonstrations in Scotland on Armistice Day.

The arrests, involving five men and two women, occurred in Glasgow city center, with an additional arrest by British Transport Police. These largely peaceful marches took place in several cities, including Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Dundee, Forres, and Dumfries.

In London, significant disturbances accompanied a large pro-Palestinian march, with 300,000 protesters. The Metropolitan Police made 126 arrests, primarily of counter-protesters, and condemned "extreme violence" by right-wing activists. Nine officers were injured.

First Minister Humza Yousaf criticized Home Secretary Suella Braverman for her comments on the protests and called for her resignation. Scottish Conservative MSP Murdo Fraser defended Braverman, stating she was addressing public concerns about Metropolitan Police standards. The decision regarding Braverman's cabinet position lies with the prime minister.
