Since this meeting meeting, we have seen a token gesture by Israel (probably a vain attempt to save face in the eyes of the international community) to stop the military coercion and allow a few trucks through with supplies.
There was some discussion at the meeting about how some activists were not comfortable with the idea of Israeli flags being burned at national demos. However, there was no consensus on whether this was a good thing or not, just an implicit understading of why it happens, even if some people don't agree with it.
Other subjects discussed were the way the media has covered the story so far, and how in particular the BBC tends to show apparent bias against the Palestinians in their coverage.
Also promoted at this meeting were two actions to happen this Saturday.
1) Another Vigil/Demo in front of The Guildhall, Market Square in Cambridge THIS SATURDAY, starting at 12pm.
2) A National Demonstration in London.
