In response to the state of Israel’s continuing massacres in Gaza an emergency demonstration in solidarity with the people of Gaza was called by Dorset Socialists and AUCB Students Union for Saturday 17th November; it was supported by Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Stop the War Coalition, Wessex Solidarity, Solent Solfed and others. The reaction of the shoppers was mainly positive, with some choosing to join in. Best comment of the day came from a bloke who had to walk a few feet out of his way “This is all we bloody need at Christmas innit!” Christmas? It’s the middle of fucking November! Some folk have it really tough.
If the bombing’s still going on we’ll all be there again next Saturday 24th, bring your flags and banners, invite your mates!
