Over 10,000 rally in London for Palestine

As this week marks the 60th commemoration of the Naqaba, around 15,000 Londoners gathered at Trafalgar Square in London on Saturday May 10, 2008 to stand in solidarity with the Palestinians and to remind their government of its responsibility as the principal author of the Catastrophe. The rally at Trafalgar Square was the culimnation of a long procession that began near the Temple tube station. It was a great show of people power which has been the characteristic of the Palestinian struggle for independence and the message was clear telling the oppressive Zionist regime that the fight is long from over. The rally demonstrates the vibrancy of the British society were despite the distorted media coverage and the altered history books they have the courage and the conviction to call their government to account.

Interestingly despite heavy media presence there was little or nothing of this massive protest in the electronic media or press.
