Oh, a grand demo today in Boston. I marched with more than 400 others, many of them Muslims, and most people 40 years and under in age, in downtown Boston today, marching for nearly 2 hours. Thru the heart of Boston, signing, chanting, praying, yelling. We stopped at the Israeli Consulate and the US Army recruiting station. I brought photos of Gazans, ones that I'd made on my last trip and ones I found on line showing the current suffering. Two men, at least one a Palestinian, offered to carry them for me so I could more freely photograph. Exhilaration is what I feel, inspirited, finding my voice with so many others.
From Gush Shalom: "At the same time as Ehud Barak was ordering the army to start the bloody ground offensive against Gaza, some ten thousand protesters from all over Israel marched in Tel-Aviv in a massive demonstration against the war. “One does not build an election campaign over the dead bodies of children!'”
