We join the giant demo for Gaza

photo2smallMembers of No to Pinkwashing joined the huge demo for Gaza in London on Saturday 19 July. Up to 100,000 people took part – the protest took half an hour to go past. Early on in the day Transport for London announced that the huge protest was disrupting bus services in central London so much that anyone with a bus ticket could use the tube instead.

The demo coincided with a national protest in Glasgow, and protests also took place in cities including Bristol and Manchester, where demonstrators staged a protest inside Marks and Spencer. Yet this wave of support for Gaza was barely reported in the mainstream news.
