16th Jan, 2010: People from all over the United Kingdom came to London today to remember the 1417 Palestinians who died in Israel’s assault on the Gaza Strip one year ago.

‘This is not only to remember the dead’, one speaker announced, ‘but also to protest at Israel’s ongoing policy of occupation.’

The planned ‘die-in’ protest at Trafalgar Square was instead held as a minute’s silence, due to wet weather. Each attendee held up the name of one person who died in the assault, to emphasise that the victims were individuals and not just part of a statistic. Of the 1417 Palestinians killed, up to 1181 are thought to have been civillians.
