Meeting George Galloway

15 04 2009

On Easter Sunday the Palestinian forum of Britain held a Palestine day in Kensington town hall, London. There were speakers, activities and selling goods all raising money for Palestine.

Whilst there I went to purchase the Viva Palestina CD (Thankgod I hadnt yet ordered it from the website lol) when I got there George Galloway’s wife told me if I waited till after his speech he will be out to sign the cd’s. So I decided to go listen to his speech and then buy the cd. As soon as he finished I told my sister Yalla let’s go before there’s a big queue! haha we were the first ones there, while we waited we chatted to his wife who is very nice and met his little son, his daughter, 2 grandkids and his son in law.
As we waited more and more people came over and pushing in front of another, when George Galloway came out we shook hands and he signed our cd’s. We waited calmly and patiently unlike the other people and his son in law told George Galloway.. These two girls were the first two here and they have waited very calmly and patiently.. to which George Galloway replied.. They are lovely girls 🙂 (yes that comment made us happy lol) Then we had our photo taken with him. I really feel so happy to have met such a wonderful man, who is an inspiration to all 🙂

Going back to the speech George Galloway mentioned that the account has been frozen which is holding the money for Gaza which was raised through Viva Palestina, so he is still trying to get money to Gaza and another way was buy selling the Viva Palestina album so whether your in the UK or Overseas go to the website and buy it. Click on the link to read the letter George Galloway wrote to the Charity Commission http://www.vivapalestina.org/alerts/GGCC_140409.htm
He also said there is another Aid convoy leaving USA in July on 4th July and in his words.. What better day then independance day!. Also another one from Venzula. George Galloway said that he will do these convoy’s every month.
