Gaza Solidarity National Demonstration - Downing Street

Comments

who's going, and why?

Is it true? Is it kind? Is it necessary?

I will be going.

Raising awareness, making some noise, is the least I can do.

It's already started! My sister just showed me some videos.

We need to demand more than just a ceasefire.

We need a total end to this systematic genocide.

 

I got there late, around 1pm (should have got on an earlier underground station instead of trying to get closer by car...)

Demonstration had already set off for the Israeli embassy.

1.5/2 hours later reached standstill. Couldn't see state so no idea how far away we were. Had to elave early as had work related things to do, so no idea when it finished.

It was impressive to see the participants - old, young, children of all races and ethnicities.

I have read BBC reported nothing

[EDIT - something put online after midnigut: - will this be used as justification for "lack of bias"?]

I have read that Sky News gave a 5 second clip and I think Channel 4 may have aired something - they atleast have.

I have heard there is a Pro-israeli counter-demonstration tomorrow. Let's see if the mainstream media covers that instead.

Now that some Israel soldiers have been sent to hell, it seems that Israel is taking its anger out by more severe indiscriminate shelling of Gaza.
