London Protest

It was a really good turn out today over 10,000 people came to protest at genocide of the Palestinian and Lebanese people if you needed convincing to get of your backside and do something about it then look at this website FromIsraeltoLebanon just read a really good artical Hezbollah, Hamas and Israel: Everything You Need To Know.

How good is it telling a policeman to go and fuck himself, well if you haven’t and you want to know? Well, it feels really good! this happened on our way home trying to cross a empty road after leaving hype park corner, we left the protest after listening to the speaker from the Jewish socialist movement it was around 4 o’clock and we have been walking all day and standing for 6 hours so we were getting tired and hungry, thus we decided to get going, the first thing was to try and figure out a strategy home, we decided to walk to Tottenham court road and get the bus. As we started to cross the empty road outside of the park with the protest directly behind us, we heard a voice “you cant cross here” from a policeman my first thought was that the roads where blocked off, but then realised it wasn’t so I replying ok and I carried on walking clearly he knew where we just came from, why the hell is he stopping us, he stated that the road will be open to the traffic soon, but at the moment its wasn’t he want us to walk down the underpass situated away from the direction we are walking to, my brother called him a 'pig' to his face as well as my input what the hell we cant cross road now, what was he going to do arrest us, well it wouldn’t surprised me they didn’t hold us on terrorism charges for cross a road.

Hearing the speakers was a refreshing after being bombarded by bias news reports it was a good mix of people from different parties and backgrounds all with the same message, stop Israel from continuing this massacre and why is Blair a pet for George ‘planet of the apes’ Bush one that was interesting to hear was George Galloway starting with the anniversary of the bombing of the King David hotel and then stating that we could be arrested under British law when we declare that Hezbollah are freedom fighters and we support them. That is pretty mental to think about we could be arrested for saying that, well I remember something similar with the ANC [African National Congress] being a terrorist group.

The response from us wasn’t wholly at the policeman but what he represents, it was an emotional reaction to what my government is doing, and they are not representing me, I don’t support the killing.
