Press TV Video: '150,000 demonstrate for Gaza in Britain'
Tens of thousands of pro-Palestinian demonstrators have marched through central London, the third mass protest for Gaza in London within a month, condemning Israeli bloodshed and urging the UK government to act to help the Palestinians in the besieged coastal strip. Unfortunately until now the UK government has given a deaf ear to these heartfelt voices as if the people don't even exist.
It's no more a debatable point but a confirmed one that Western governments are duping their people by using their loyalty at the ballot box and then shoving them aside like a pile to turd. After the ballots are counted, it's time to be stonewalled. Demonstrations are fine as long as the participants are again mute the following day. The sinister transition of the old academic expression "peoples' rule" that filled the text books of yester years has been completed. Did it ever truly exist or was it a window-dressing from the start? God Willing, there will come a day when these folks come out on the streets asking for their own voices to be heeded, fearlessly and persistently. That's when they'll learn to hit where it hurts the most - the ballot box. Occupy Wall St. was one such attempt but it failed as it was still far outnumbered by the apathetic ones, so the law enforcers turned it real bloody and yet got away with it.
