GAZA DEMONSTRATION 03-01-09
Attended the demonstration against the Israeli incursion into Gaza and the horrendous treatment of the Palestinians, not only by Israel but by the world as a whole. If any nation has been abused and mistreated more than the Palestinians it would be hard to find. So not only did I attend "photographically", I felt I had to protest as well.
The bulk of the protesters were naturally exiled Palestinians but a large cross section of all religions and races were represented, and across a wide age range. Young children who are potentially tomorrow's militants were there in groups and with their families.
The solution to the problem seems totally beyond the wit of man. The causes are clear for all to see though.
