This is the first time I have attended protests since 2003, when 2 million people couldn't prevent the bloodlust of the UK and US governments.
First protest was tiny, around 200/300 people in Manchester Picadilly Gardens.
The second one was larger, in MediaCityUK, outside the BBC offices. It was also protesting the very biased coverage that the BBC has broadcast, which seemed to be limited to humanising the Israelis and defending their "right" to destroy Gaza to an extent that even Israeli newspapers like Haaretz were less biased.
This one was bigger, but once again not of a size that it should have been
