Candlelit vigil (Southampton) gratuitious ...write your own comment also please.

09-01-2009 02:37

arabic - Gaza - candle vigil in Southampton
People came from far and near came, to hold their candles and share the cold and the sadness for others further away where electricity, water. food and ordinary daily needs are not being met because of savage oppression, killing, maimings and bombing.
