People staged a protest this morning at Manchester airport. Welcome to Palestine 2012 participants with family, friends and supporters protested at the Jet2 desk at Manchester airport after the airline tore up boarding passes on instruction of the Israeli government.

Protesters chanted "Jet2 shame on you, do what Israel tells you to".
Jet2 has distributed letters confirming they have "reviewed their policy" and will now refund passengers who were denied boarding. Protest works!
We have also heard that people have been allowed onto the Jet2 plane.
