CNN PRODUCER NOTE iReporter amusiyiwa captured these images of protesters in Leicester, England, demonstrating outside a theatre which was hosting an Israeli dance company. He said the several hundred protesters were calling for a boycott of Israeli products and events, chanting "Free Palestine". They also booed those who attended the event, which comes as pressure mounts on both Israel and the Palestinians to forge a cease-fire following days of deadly rocket attacks from Gaza and Israeli air strikes. He says it is not unusual to see such protests in the city, which has a "culture of activism". "It's difficult as I have friends on both sides, but on the other hand I tend to be on the side of people who are oppressed," he said. He hopes a cease-fire can be put in place as soon as possible.
