Beth, in London about 20,000 people marched on Saturday as well but only a very brief mention of this appeared on TV news.
I wasn't there, unfortunately, as I only heard about the demo when I was on a train going to Brighton for the day.
It seems that the US news media aren't showing what we see over here of the appalling destruction of Lebanon and of course innocent Israelis are suffering too. Events like this makes one wonder whether humanity is ever going to reach a civilized state.

Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.
