Demo

The demo was small, maybe 150 people gathered at fairly short notice. I raised my voice with them in some anti-war chants directed at the doubtless sound proofed edifice that is the American embassy in Grovsenor Square. The protesters fitted the stereotype, passionate young women from the SWP and old men with beards and sandals. There were some Syrian Assad supporters, some of whom became very upset when a speaker said something negative about Assad. The key speaker was Jeremy Corbyn MP. I wish we had more MPs like him.
