A WEEKEND OF DEMONSTRATIONS
This weekend was spent photographing the two demonstrations held in London over the situation in Gaza. Saturday the demonstration in Hyde Park was to show support for the Palestinian people and condemn the Israeli actions in Gaza. Sunday's in Trafalgar Square was exactly the opposite and was organised by the British Jewish deputies.
Both provided good material for photography and I tried to show both sides of the argument, with great difficulty I may add since my sympathies have always been with dispossessed Palestinians and their treatment not just by Israel but by the world in general.
