Pax Christi is encouraging members and friends to participate in the 'Stop the Massacre : Israel Out of Gaza' National demonstration this Saturday 10 January. This starts with speakers in Hyde Park and continues with a march to the Israeli Embassy, High Street Kensington, London.
A message from Pax Christi reads: "We invite members, other Christian or faith groups who wish to join, to gather in silence from 12.15 at the area marked Brook Gate slightly south of Speakers Corner and parallel to Park Lane (looking out for the Pax Christi banner). People can choose to stay together or join those listening to speakers until the march begins."
"Our Quaker friends have posters with the word Peace in English, Hebrew and Arabic - if you wish then can be collected from Friends House, Euston Road from 10am on Saturday.
