The other day, Sean and I took a leisurely amble around the ever-lovely Carsington Water. Click the pic to see what it looked like that early evening… mmmm…
A couple of Saturdays ago, I went on a peace demo that was all about remembering the terrible suffering sustained in Gaza in the recent Israeli attacks, attacks that are even now being investigated as war crimes.
The day was warm and dry, the protestors optimistic and passionate. There was no hatred, just a tremendous feeling of solidarity with the ordinary people of Gaza. And for all those who view any support of Palestinian human rights as somehow anti-Semitic, please check through the gallery of pics (by clicking above) and note the large number of Jewish organisations who were on the demo. A lot of ordinary, everyday Jews marching in support of similar Palestinians.
It was a day of unity, a day of peace and a marker of the huge diversity of the British antiwar movement.
