Protest against Israeli dancers held outside Curve Leicester
More than a hundred protestors gathered outside Curve in Leicester last night to demonstrate against a show by a dance company.
A group called Don't Dance with Israeli Apartheid organised the gathering to protest against the one-night appearance of the Batsheva dance company from Israel.
Protestors, carrying banners and placards, gathered outside the Rutland Street theatre at 6pm.
Police used barriers to keep the demonstrators away from members of the audience as they arrived.
