Thanks to our many members and supporters who joined us for a massive march and rally yesterday, Nov 5th. This was one of the biggest pro-Palestine demonstrations in the history of the city, and provides a clear indication of the strength of feeling amongst local people – regardless of their background, faith or political affiliation. The demo sent an unambiguous message to our city council: by not calling for an immediate ceasefire, you are out of step with your constituents.
Stay tuned for announcements of our future events: it would appear that the need for solidarity with the people of Palestine will only become greater over the next few weeks.
Here is a selection of photos and videos taken on the day. These will have been seen all over the world, and especially in Gaza. We hope this will hearten our Palestinian comrades at this very dark time.
