At least 150,000 UK nationals are estimated to have gathered in London on Saturday to protest the government’s austerity measures and to demand Prime Minister David Cameron’s resignation for his connection to the recent offshore scandal, local media reported.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The anti-austerity march was organized by the People's Assembly activist group to rally against cuts to health and social housing benefits, as well as measures destroying the UK education system and attacking workers’ rights, The Independent newspaper said.

​The protesters also called on Cameron to resign after it was revealed in the Panama Papers leak that the prime minister had profited from selling his share of his late father’s alleged offshore investment fund run from the Bahamas.

​An alleged leak of some 11.5 million documents from Panama-based law firm Mossack Fonseca in early April implicated Cameron’s father in using the company’s services to hide taxes. The firm has denied any wrong-doing.
