For a demo called with only a week’s notice, it was huge. Protestors vented their rage at the ongoing slaughter in Lebanon (and Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan) by marching from Hyde Park, past the US embassy, leaving childrens’ shoes outside Downing Street, and ending up in Parliament Square for a rally. There was a die-in and sit-down protest outside Downing Street at which a number of arrests were reported. Two protestors loudly congratulated the police outside Downing Street for their bravery in protecting the public from Tony Blair, and were not arrested. Photos, audio clips of speeches, and some video footage are attached.
It's a good thing these guys don't carry firearms...
Tony Blair and Condoleeza Rice have recently made statements that suggest a view that is, essentially, genocidal in nature. In so doing, they have stripped away their saccrine masks of democracy and apple pie, exposing themselves for the lizards they are.

The Lebanese RESISTANCE must immediately stop firing rockets into civilian areas in Israel, Soros' New York-based fake 'Human Rights Watch' says, calling the attacks ''a war crime''.The victims are blamed for defending themselves? 'Human Rights Watch' is a sham.

Brutal Arrests on Pro-Lebanon Protest yesterday (05.08.06) outside the American Embassy and then (not so brutal) later on at Dowing Street.
Marks and Spencer are Britain's biggest corporate sponsor of Israel and Zionism. So on the 29th July and 5th August, pickets of Marks and Spencers in Manchester were held, in support of the Palestinians and Lebanese who are being murdered by the racist Israeli state.

With the psychopathic Israeli regime carrying out ethnic cleansing and mass civilian murder in Lebanon on an industrial scale, another A to B march would never seem enough. However the turnout was fantastic for such a short notice demo - must have been 100,000 but predictably the now blatantly pro-israel bbc is claiming a downright insulting 20,000.

between 8,000 and 150,000 people (depending on who you believe) marched in london on saturday afternoon, calling for a ceasefire now. police seemed often heavy-handed and out of control, and there were at least a dozen arrests.
Protestors took part in a sit down, and dead, protest outside Downing Street. With a group of demonstrators lying down as dead, with many stopping to sit and join them. The protest ended with members of the last groups of activists being arrested.
A very large turn out especially for something called at such short notice. The protest saw a diverse group of people trying to make the common opinion heard.
