Report from Rayyan
I saw riot police charging the first few rows of protestors with their shields, and beating many with batons. The protestors retreated about ten metres back, as did the riot police. A man had been knocked to the ground and was unconscious, and some protestors eventually were able to carry him to the police to be taken to safety. It was all quite brutal, and with thousands of us in an enclosed space like the underpass, we had nowhere to go. An old lady was wondering around in the space between the protestors and the police: I told her she should get out of there before the police charge again but she said she wouldn’t leave until she found her husband.
I am not the only member of the Green Party of England and Wales protesting, Rayyan has been blogging and demonstrating.
Take a look at his blog....and get along to the daily demonstration 5.30-7.30pm at the Israeli Embassy.
A UN school bombed today, the IDF say that Hamas fighters were using it, the UN and Hamas deny this.
No journalists allowed into Gaza...so IDF propaganda rules...I wonder whether they will claim that their own solidiers they killed today were used as a human shield by Hamas.
