Can't make it due to health.

At least their constant harping about the mistreatment of the poor, innocent, never hurt a hair on a baby's head Palestinians will have slightly more relevance that it did when they related it to the war in Iraq.

I imagine there will be very little criticism of terrorist action on the part of Hizbollah.

I genuinely hate these organisations and their utterly blinkered and ill educated attitudes.

There's room to protest, but these protests will be like they have been since the original stop the war march - a "Palestine good. Arab good. US bad. Israel bad. UK bad."

I haven't gone near a march like this since the original Stop the War march sickened me by co-opting people's genuine concerns about the whys and wherefores of military action in Iraq into some kind of hatred for the US, UK and Israel, blind support for Palestine, and an absolute lack of blame to any terrorist group or Arab nation.
