Solidarity With Gaza from Plymouth

About 40 or so people took part in a vigil today in Plymouth, to show solidarity with the people of Gaza, and to protest the inhumane bombing and invasion by the Israeli military. The turnout was especially heartening as the event was called at very short notice, with it only being organised last night on finding out that Israel’s ground forces had entered the Gaza Strip. Also encouraging was the great number of beeps of support from passing motorists, far more than I have ever heard at previous events. It is obvious that a huge number of people are outraged and disgusted with the actions of Israel this past week or so. A further vigil is planned for 5.30pm at Charles Cross on Wednesday evening.
