Gaza demo

What a magnificent demonstration on Saturday against the atrocities in Gaza. This was the biggest protest in Britain ever held on the issue of Palestine.

The organisers have set up a web site: through which people could use Flickr to upload their photos for us all to see. What a brilliant idea.

There have also been protests in towns and cities around the world.

We should use the widespread outrage against what is going on in Gaza to massively strengthen campaigning on Palestine in the unions, in the workplace and generally. The TUC have been moved to launch an appeal for Aid to Gaza. As well as being desperately needed, raising funds for the appeal is a great way to involve people and get them discussing what is going on.
