Protests

30 01 2009

The last 4 weeks I been attending the Saturday Protests in London. Some are along with the biggest demonstrations in London’s history, people of all nationalities were there not only arabs, and we had huge support from asians and english ppl who were protesting with us.  The protests have took place in Embankment, Trafalgar square, Portland place (BBC offices), Hyde park and the Israeli embassy, we marched through various streets in London including Parliament street. There were speeches held at BBC, Hyde park and Trafalgar square.

The protests have took place all over the world not just London, so for those who say.. Why protest? the answer is simple.. we need to get our voices heard!! take a look at this..

What the people say

 

Here are some more short clips from some of the protests.

Go to youtube to see more of the protests and great speakers, I also have some photo’s on display from flickr from the last 2 protests (17th and 24th Jan)
