On Sunday 4th January Sydney held its second rally in support of the people of Gaza. Many thousands marched (10 abreast, tightly packed for three city blocks) from the Town Hall to Belmore Park where speakers censured Israel's brutal policy of extermination. The mood of the crowd was decidedly angrier than at the previous Monday's event. Watching on, after a week's blood-letting by Israel, our government still refuses to condemn the rogue state. How gutless is that?
News has reached me that a small counter-demonstration in favour of the ongoing massacres was held in Melbourne that same day. I cannot comprehend that Australians (if that's who they were) could think and act in this way. If they were to see the video * of the effects of a bomb in a Gaza market and still hold these views then they are evil beyond belief.
