Thousands from all round Scotland marched through Edinburgh today, Saturday10th January, in solidarity with people in Palestine under attack from the Israeli state. The large turn-out indicated widespread revulsion at the massacre of civilians by the Israeli forces. Hundreds of shoes were hurled over police lines towards the US consulate, as the demonstrators were kept back some way from the consulate itself.
Later, speakers addressed a rally at the Ross Bandstand in Princes Street Gardens.
" The invasion of Gaza makes me feel sick and angry. Boy do we need a worldwide intifada." declared one demonstrator.
If you attended the demo, we invite you to post further reports, information and photos.
