Last Saturday, cities and towns across the world demonstrated against Israel's barbaric attack on Gaza. The biggest was in London, where up to 100,000 marched. This coming Saturday 26 July another mass demonstration has been called for and organised by: Stop the War Coalition, Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, Friends of Al Aqsa, British Muslim Initiative, Muslim Association of Britain, Palestinian Forum in Britain.
During the course of the next few days, we need to build and make this the biggest demonstration thus far, that’s not an impossible task to achieve, only last night my own next door neighbour said during the course of a conversation we had about Gaza that he would very much like to attend the next event or demonstration; you will be surprised at the number of people who have told me they are appalled at what they have seen and understand to be going on in Gaza.
As I write this post IDF names the 28th soldier killed in Gaza; Gaza officials put the day's death toll at 27 - 608 total. At least 130 Palestinians have been killed since Israel began its ground operation, raising the recent escalation death toll in Gaza to 608, with 3,700 wounded.
Now I’m not going to write a song and a long post about Israel's Operation Protective Edge as it enters its third week, my primary concern is with building and urging others to help build Saturdays demonstration, to make it big, to make it loud and colorful, full of interest; lively and exciting, that would indeed be brilliant!
