National Demonstration for Gaza
Saturday 9 August. Assemble 12 noon

(tubes: Great Portland Street/Oxford Circus)
marching to rally at Hyde Park via US Embassy  
Please ask all your family and friends to join the demonstration on Saturday. Be a part of it!
At the time of writing (Tuesday) over 1,814 Palestinians have been killed and 9,536 injured. 
UN OCHA says "Children continue to bear the brunt of the crisis". The number of children killed stands at 408 with at least 2,877 children injured.
An Israeli missile attack on Sunday against an UNWRA school has been condemned by the UN  as 'criminal act.'
Yesterday (Monday), Israel broke its own ceasefire, killing an eight year old Palestinian girl and flattening her family home. The Israelis then launched an attack on another home>
Whole neighbourhoods have been flattened, and almost half of the Strip was already a 'no go zone', before the bombardment of Rafah.

Palestinians are struggling to dig out the bodies of the dead, hospitals struggling to cope with the bloodshed and death, and shelters struggling to cope with the hundreds of thousands attempting to seek refuge. Ambulances, hospitals and UN schools sheltering refugees have all been targeted by Israeli bombs.
International outrage has escalated, with thousands blocking the streets outside the Israeli Embassy in London over the weekend, and protests taking place across Britain. But even now, the BBC is determined to 'defend Israel'> 

We need to increase the pressure even further - and ensure that our voices are heard. Please ensure that nobody can say that they didn't know about the demonstration this coming Saturday - forward this email on to family and friends, and bring them along.
