First, a great big thank you to all of you who have taken the time to join one or more of the many demonstrations, or who have been out on the streets leafleting, or written to your MP or MEPs, or complained to the BBC, or who have done whatever else you can to demand an end to Israel’s attacks on the civilian population of Gaza and an immediate lifting of the siege.
But sadly the killing of innocent men, women and children goes on … and so must the protests!
Saturday 9 August 12:00 pm – 4:30 pm National Demonstration in London.

If you are thinking of going from the Cheltenham-Gloucester-Cirencester-Stroud area and can take others with you, or would like to go and would welcome a lift, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will endeavour to coordinate. Also the Worcester – Palestine Friendship Group may be organising a coach.
Stroud – Saturday 9 August from 12:00 – 1:00pm
For those of you who prefer to protest closer to home, the Stroud Peace Movement are organising their third protest. Last weekend saw a gathering of well over 100 representing a broad spectrum of different interests from both Stroud and across the county and next weekend promises to be even larger.
