The four are all charged with using threatening, abusive or insulting words, or behaviour, with intent, likely to stir up racial hatred on 16 May, and all issued not guilty pleas.

The abuse followed simmering tensions due to the political situation in Israel and the Palestinian territories.  Thousands of people had been marching through Central London in support of the Palestinians, amid ongoing fighting between Israel and militants in Gaza.

The next hearing will be on 11 February 2022, with  the defendants not required for that hearing.
