Ceasefire now! London demo 5th Aug 2006 – report, pics, audio, video

06-08-2006 14:18

Video Video
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.

Lebanon London peace demo pics

06-08-2006 02:58

huge crowds at start
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.
