The panel also included Karl Sabbagh, the Palestinian-British historian and writer, Andy Murray, Campaigner and Director of SNP friends of Palestine, and Professor Manuel Hassassian, Palestinian Ambassador to the UK.

Professor Hassassian started the event with a highly powerful and moving speech. "If I could choose a people to march with me it would be the Scottish", he began, and went on to talk of the current situation on the ground in Palestine, noting the ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian population as well as the genocide of the Palestinian culture.
He continued by talking of the disparity between his public opinion of supporting a two-state solution, but also of his private feeling that this option no longer exists, due to Israel's settlement expansion and land grabbing behavior. He further remarked of the contentious stance of the current UK Prime Minister, in Israel defending its right as an occupying power to "defend itself" against Palestinian civilians.
