In pictures: March of Solidarity with Ukraine held in Cambridge
A demonstration was held in Cambridge today (Saturday, March 5) in solidarity with Ukraine on the tenth day of the Russian invasion.
The March of Solidarity with Ukraine was organised by the Cambridge University Ukrainian Society.
Hundreds joined the protest which started on Sidgwick Avenue where there was a speech from Cambridge MP Daniel Zeichner before it set off around the city centre, ending in Castle Street.
The demonstration grew in numbers as it travelled along King’s Parade where vigils and protests have been held over the past 10 days.
A statement released ahead of the event by organisers said: “We, the representatives of the Cambridge University Ukrainian Society, humbly request the city of Cambridge, the University of Cambridge, the county of Cambridgeshire, the country of England and the entirety of the United Kingdom for solidarity with the sovereign, independent nation of Ukraine in this dark hour.
“We invite you to join us for a public demonstration in support of Ukraine, Ukrainians, global security, democracy and peace.
“We ask you to stand for freedom, for Ukrainian sovereignty and territorial integrity, for the right to self-determination and for peace in Ukraine.”
