Survivors of the Supernova music festival massacre on October 7 attend a “No to Terror” rally in London, telling the crowd about what they endured at the music festival-turned-nightmare at which Hamas terrorists mowed down some 360 people.

“On October 7, the life I so desperately love was almost cut short because of terrorism,” the UK’s Daily Mail quotes Bar Vilker as telling the crowd. “I lost friends, family and any innocence left inside of me — I will never be the same.”

The rally was organized by the 7/10 Human Chain Project, which describes itself as a grassroots organization established in the UK following the October 7 Hamas assault in southern Israel.

The organization has ties to the Hostages and Missing Families Forum in Israel, and organized several rallies and events in the UK prior to Sunday’s rally.

British Palestinian activist John Aziz was also in attendance at the rally, local media outlets report, and revealed to the crowd that he has received death threats for advocating for peace with Israel.

Saying that for many people, peace has become a “controversial idea,” Aziz tells the crowd that he hopes to work with Israelis to spread a message of peace, “so that eventually, maybe our governments will listen to each other.”
