21-07-2006 09:41We all know the BBC is strictly impartial! How do we know that? Because that's what they keep saying on the telly! But in reality most are not 'journalists' but warmongering propagandists. The BBC the last 2 decades has given just 2% to broadcasting anti-war dissent! They have shown to be worse than FOX, CNN etc

if the reporting on this situation does not improve, it's time to blockade the media at their offices. The same goes for this pathetic excuse for a "Government". Why is Bliar the War Criminal still in power?

STOP ISRAELI ATTACKS ON LEBANON AND PALESTINE
19-07-2006 21:03World events have recently taken on the personality of a madman from a bad 60's b grade movie, intent on taking over the world. Maybe that is exactly what's happening.

The Police were hopelessly outnumbered so could do little except stand and watch. They called in reinforcements from just about everywhere including City of London, British Transport Police and local Westminster duty plods.

They then formed a line of vans and officers across the front of the demo and remained until the protest finished. There was no violence, the protest remained loud and angry until the end.
Expect greater numbers on Saturday.
