London, UK. 13th November, 2018. Students take part in a creative and non-violent Festival of Resistance organised in protest against a speech at King's College London (KCL) by the Israeli Ambassador to the UK Mark Regev, against the normalisation and legitimisation of Israel's oppression of the Palestinian people and against KCL's clampdown on student activism. Mark Regev attracted controversy and criticism as the spokesman for the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs (2004-2007) and chief spokesman for the Prime Minister of Israel (2007-2015) when presenting Israel's position during the 2006 Lebanon War and 2008-9, 2012 and 2014 Israeli offensives against Gaza.
