whitehall gaza updateTagged as: freedom_flotilla gaza palestine parliament_square socpa
protests have continued around whitehall all afternoon
the first protest at downing street continued for more than an hour in defiance of police requests to move to the free speech area on the opposite side of the road away from most foot-traffic and away from downing street itself. a megaphone was freely used to outline the issues around the freedom flotilla and the israeli threats, and to highlight our government's apparent indifference to the plight of uk and other nationals aboard.
after a short break for sustenance, the protest moved to the entrance to the foreign office where it continued for nearly an hour, before police pressure became too great.
so, back to downing street once more for a fresh protest there, and after another hour of banners, megaphone and leafletting, they are now planning to continue outside parliament for a short while to finish the day.
