At the risk of raising Bergholt Stuttley Johnson's ire[^] Smile | :)
This always confused me about the left. Once (and only once) I went on a demonstration when the Israelis started that nonsense in Gaza a few years back. I went because the missus wanted to go, and I wanted to make sure I was with her in case something kicked off. OK, I didn't agree with what Israel did, but I've yet to see a demo that actually achieves anything so it seems pointless, if I wanted to put the effort in to change stuff I'd go into politics. Anyhoo, we got there, so what would a sane organisation do? It would make it's point clearly and strongly. What did I see? Several loosely affiliated causes all vying with each other, and slogans about every cause under the sun. WTF does Cuba have to do with Israel attacking Gaza other than in a broader woolly it-is-all-connected sense or a tinfoil-hat it's all caused by American Imperialism. I'm also pretty certain as much as the LGBT alliance supports Palestine, Palestine would not support the LGBT alliance. Then we had some tedious "street theatre" which looked like a failing a-level arts project, that'll all really stick it to the IDF/Government/however it was all aimed at (still not sure).

OT, but the of the most disturbing thing was the police photographing everyone (which seems a real infringement of civil liberties). I think they have a picture of me in front of a Marxist banner which I just happened to be standing near. I'm roughly as Marxist as I am Fascist i.e. not at all.
