An estimated 15,000 protesters gathered in London Saturday afternoon to express their anger at the Israeli ground offensive into Gaza and the increasing death toll.
Coverage of the protest and others abroad, by the mainstream media has been sporadic and minimal.
The Guardian is never afraid to report where others fear to tread and the online side of the publication carries a report "Protests come as David Cameron and Barack Obama reiterate support for Israel's right to take action to defend itself".
A picture can paint a thousand words. For this reason we have chosen an image of a child in Gaza as the main one for this report and a slideshow of images from protests Saturday showing support for Gaza.
The protests were held in Jakarta, Indonesia, Germany, Spain, India, Turkey, USA, South Africa, Ireland, the UK and elsewhere Friday and Saturday. Many, it seems, are not falling for the Israeli hype that it is all about defending themselves.
Opinion - All countries have a right to defend themselves but how far that mandate goes and in what circumstances is open to debate. For many Israel oversteps the mark over and over again. Before the ground offensive a one sided battle played out with a well-armed and well protected Israel blasting a small less defended country.
The resistance, military or call them what you will in Gaza have weapons. They fire missiles at Israel. Israel is quick to number how many are fired on Israel but is less forthcoming about the number they have used in this current conflict to bombard Gaza and its civilians.
Israel has a vast arsenal of weapons and a US funded Iron Dome to protect it from Hamas militants. Israel refuses to abide by international rules on nuclear and chemical weapons and the west turns a blind eye.
Hypocrisy is riding high right now in the west. Spin and propaganda are filling media news reports but they cannot erase news such as today when a family in Gaza were killed. Sky News reports Saturday "Eight members of the same family have been killed by tank fire in northern Gaza, as the Israeli ground offensive continues. The members of the Abu Jurad family - two men, two women and four children - were killed in Beit Hanun, emergency services spokesman Ashraf Qudra said. Israel's military says is ready for a "significant expansion" of a ground offensive that has already claimed the 51 Palestinians and one Israeli soldier".
The death toll in Gaza is more than 300 since the start of the current hostilities. The people of Gaza are trapped with no border escape possible.
The UN and US President Obama have warned Israel about how far to go but they are empty words.
