Local Protesting

My local mosque (or rather the one I attended for fifteen years while in my old home) was one of eight that organised a local protest for the events occurring in Gaza. I attended out of loyalty to the mosque as well as the cause and it seemed pretty successful - we had local MPs and councillors giving speeches and stuff.

Perhaps more interesting than the march was that it was organised in the first place; this "Council of Waltham Forest Mosques" that these eight have formed has been a long time coming, and if this is what they're capable of organising then I have great hope for the future.
