At the end of the Stroud Vigil on Saturday for Gaza it was agreed, assuming the violence is still continuing, to hold another vigil 11.30-12.30 on Saturday. It would be great if this one was even bigger - so tell all your friends. Bring a candle in a jam jar and any banners or placards.

The blog entry re the Vigil has led to a fair few extra emails to me this last few days - I wanted to highlight first three petitions folk can sign:
Plus a friend of a woman in Stroud is in Gaza right now and is still doing a blog when possible: http://talestotell.wordpress.com/ She apparently travelled there with the Free Gaza Movement and is now volunteering with the Red Cross and Red Crescent. It is not easy reading, but gives an insight to how it really is there, right now. There is also a report with more eye witnesses and comment from SchNEWS here.
