Another Wasted Opportunity

23-07-2006 16:10

Having left the pub and rushed across town to Trafalgar Square it was disappointing to find only one person waiting around looking slightly bored. So including the person I'd been drinking with that made a dispiriting three of us.

London demo in solidarity with Lebanese and Palestinians.

23-07-2006 15:48

Singing in the rain.
Considering the short notice (less than one week) the demo was impressively large. Thousands came from all over the country to enjoy the heat-wave in Britain’s most polluted city and protest about the slaughter in Lebanon. Fortunately for everyone the weatherman had lied and it rained from early on in the demo till just before the end. Having been cooked here for over a week it has to be said that the rain was lovely.

Difficult to say how many came there were other regional mobilizations around the country. Definitely over ten thousand.

Robert Fisk: A gripping diary of one week in the life and death of Beirut

23-07-2006 14:03

The local Beirut papers are filled with photographs that would never be seen in the pages of a British paper: of decapitated babies and women with no legs or arms or of old men in bits. Israel's air raids are promiscuous and - when you see the results as we now do with our own eyes - obscene.

"Missiles and Bombs Threaten the Future"

23-07-2006 12:52

The spiral of vengeance is not a solution!.. Perhaps a change will come in the US; perhaps questions will be raised soon.. The attack itself-again that I didn't approve-was retaliation for the US policy of the "big stick," retribution for the "new world order" that creates so much poverty.

Middle East: Cradle or Graveyard of Empire?

23-07-2006 09:49

No, the abysmal failures in Iraq have not dissuaded Washington from embarking on yet another adventure. George W. Bush and his warmongering allies are preparing themselves for another major incident in the Middle East. This time Iran is the main challenge in the establishment of the new world order and a direct target.
