2,000-strong Gaza protest in Melbourne

A day after 2,000 marched in Sydney, a similar turnout in Melbourne came to voice their opposition to Israel's massacre in Gaza.

I was there and took several photos. Organisers put the numbers at roughly 2,000. I'm quite astonished at the turnout, considering most people found out less than 24 hours ago.

Whether it will be covered or not is another question. Protests against Israel tend to fall under the Australian media's radar... surprise, surprise.

Organisers have planned another rally for Sunday at 4pm from the State Library.

2000 is not bad at all!

Have you seen this, by the way?
