Passing by Westminster tube
Marching on a broad front
Thinks: "Why doesn't that blinkin' snapper get out the bleedin' way?"
There's no justice, just us
Jews for justice for Palestinians
Anti-imperialism pulls in a youthful crowd
Pausing for pedestrians crossing at Parliament Square
That's the second Oxford PSC banner I photographed
Got wheels? Come on down and demonstrate – 1
Doggies do demonstrations too
Then raise the scarlet standard high, within its shade we'll live and die

The end of the demonstration
With the insurgency against the brutal US/UK occupation of Iraq making most of the running in the mainstream media's middle-eastern coverage, perhaps the relative side-lining of Israeli state barbarism (not that it ever gets the breadth or depth of condemnatory stories it deserves) has had a knock-on effect on the size of this annual demonstration. However, as a friend who was on the whole demonstration and at the concluding Trafalgar Square rally pointed out, size isn't everything – the quality of the people protesting put her in mind of folks who don't just show up for another A to B march once a year, but spend plenty of time in between on the nitty-gritty of solidarity campaign work. And indeed, the recent controversy over UK lecturers' unions' backing an academic boycott of Israeli universities may well have something to do with the sizeable contingents of teachers, lecturers and even schoolchildren on the demo.
If you're moved to demonstrate practical international solidarity with our Palestinian sisters and brothers, I recommend checking out the direct action stylings of the International Solidarity Movement: http://www.ism-london.org.uk and http://www.palsolidarity.org
For the most politically astute coverage and analysis of the ever-deepening middle-eastern crisis, I recommend the International Communist Current's 'Israel/Palestine' portal page: http://en.internationalism.org/taxonomy/term/145
This event was organised by the UK's Palestine Solidarity Campaign: http://www.palestinecampaign.org
Supported by: Muslim Association of Britain, Jews for Justice for Palestinians, Stop the War Coalition, Friends of Al Aqsa, War on Want, National Union of Teachers, Trade Union Friends of Palestine, Palestinian Forum in Britain
In International Solidarity,
