Unconditional Ceasefire Now! demonstration in London
The Stop the War demonstration on Saturday 5 August brought more than 100,000 protestors onto London's streets. This is unprecedented for a protest called with only one week's notice.
They came from every corner of Britain. Hundreds of national and local organisations were there: from the trade unions, from Muslim associations and mosques, from Lebanese community groups; from CND and dozens of local peace groups; from the Green Party, Respect, Labour against the War and many other political organisations. Such is the nationwide anger at Israel's barbaric destruction of Lebanon and Gaza. All were united in the demand for an immediate unconditional ceasefire in Lebanon and Gaza.
