3rd National Demonstration for Gaza
Saturday 24 January
Israel Out of Gaza Now: Lift the Blockade
Assemble: BBC Broadcasting House, Portland Place, London, W1A 1AA (nearest tube: Oxford Circus) March: to Trafalgar Square
With over 1,100 killed, 350 of them children, and over 5500 injured, the suffering in Gaza is beyond catastrophic. Israel is ignoring the worldwide clamour for it to stop now and is escalating its attacks.
A third national demonstration against Israel’s barbarity and war crimes has been called for Saturday 24 January in London by Stop the War Coalition, Palestine Solidarity Campaign, British Muslim Association and many other organisations.
The demonstration will assemble at BBC Broadcasting House, Portland Place, London, as a response to the BBC’s largely one-sided coverage of the Gaza massacre, allowing Israeli spokespeople endless opportunities to propagate lies and deception without challenge.
The issue of coverage is a thorny one and I have been brewing some thoughts the past week.
Hopefully I shall condense them into something vaguely sensical this weekend.
Watch this space.
