Remembering……

And so it continues and the world watches on.

Our lily-livered politicians tut-tutting about what Israel is doing, but not doing a damn thing about it.

Obama said that it HAS to stop, whilst writing a cheque for another few million dollars worth of weapons to be sent to Israel.

The people of the world are rising up to be counted and standing there saying this is wrong. In the 4 weeks we have been demonstrating, I have seen new faces come and join our protests and people are now speaking out against Israel.

I’m not going to go on about what is happening there, you can all see for yourselves on the news.

I just wanted to share with you about our last protest. Normally we stand, wave placards and shout…..very loudly, but Friday we wanted to do something a little different and remember those who had lost their lives. We asked if people would like to write down a name of someone who had been killed and hold it whilst we took a photograph. We also read out all the names of the children who had been killed…..all of those whose lives had been cruely snatched away from them.

Here is Coventry’s memorial to them all.

About shakingtheshadowsfromtheolivetrees

I have a massive case of wanderlust and plan to see as much of this beautiful planet as I can before I die. I love Egypt, which gave me my first taster of Arabic culture, since then I have travelled to a few Arabic-speaking countries. My idea of a nightmare is an all inclusive 5* hotel resort. I much prefer to stay in basic accommodation in amongst the locals. Some of the best food I have eaten has been street food...and incidentally some of the worst has been in a 5*hotel. This year has given me the opportunity to visit Palestine, a place I loved to read about when I was younger in my children's bible. I am sure it isn't going to disappoint.
