Thousands demonstrate against Gaza massacre in London
Just been sent this by Theresa of Green Left, the video is from counterfire and is a speech by Lowkey, Britain's premier political rapper
Just back from London demo, Shahrar (who read out Caroline's statement and gave a well-received speech) and hero of the day Mark D, who ensured at very short notice lots of Green Party placards were very visible. Andy H and I carried the GL banner. I'm sure there were others so sorry if I missed you!
I'm not one for inflating attendance figures, but ignore the press, there were at least 3 - 4,000 people. We blocked off Whitehall, and then marched down to the Israeli Embassy. Emotions were running high, but it was a peaceful and vocal demo with a broad section of people in attendance.
There are plans to demonstrate every evening outside the embassy at 5.30 if you're in central London.
