Emergency Demonstration

There are demonstrations this Saturday (10 January) against Israel’s attack on Gaza. If you’re in the UK, there’s more info on the Stop the War website.

If Britain were Gaza… 30,600 dead

Gaza has a population 1.5 million. In the last thirteen days Israel has slaughtered 765 Palestinians, 220 of them children, and injured 3500. A proportionately similar death and injury toll in Britain, with a population of 60 million, would be 30,600 dead, with 12,000 of them children, and 125,000 injured. If Britain was Gaza, Israel would be condemned by the whole world for monstrous crimes against humanity and forced to stop the carnage. The mealy mouthed statements by governments so far are pitiful. Israel is only able to act in this barbaric manner because of the support it gets from governments who habitually turn a blind eye to its war crimes.
