Huge anti-war march in London

Lenin’s Tomb has multiple photos and video plus lots of coverage of the massive demo on Saturday in Britain.

Craig Murray in particular made a brilliant speech. He took particular care to slam those who were busily assisting the bombing of Israel while denouncing Hezbollah for what little retaliatory strikes it could muster. And, like the best speakers, he bigged up the crowd: “I can see hope. You can’t see yourselves,” he said, “but I can see you stretch all the way back up Whitehall to Trafalgar Square. People of every religion and ethnicity, a genuine sample of modern Britain.”

Professor Manuel Hassassian, who would if Palestine was allowed an embassy, be that country’s ambassador to Britain, was particularly well-received. He touched fairly forcefully on the irony of neoconservatives pretending to support democracy in the Middle East while working to crush two democratic governments and two democratic movements.

Next Saturday here in the States there will be national protests in support of the people of Lebanon and Palestine in Washington D.C., Los Angeles, San Francisco, and elsewhere.

My camcorder has arrived, my first ever, and I’ve been learning how to use it (camcorders are a teensy bit more complex than digital still cameras!) and will be posting footage from the upcoming LA demo as well as driving the truck that leads the march.


  • See you there!!

    Don’t forget to get a few casette mailers for your new camcorder. If you get in a pinch, you can toss it in and drop it in a mailbox, mailed to yourself or a friend. Its a quick way to keep the contents in your hands and out of those who would take it from you!
