Tens of thousands of people marched through central London on Saturday, 5 August, to call for peace in the Middle East and justice for the Lebanese and Palestinian peoples.

The march started at noon at the Speaker's Corner, in Hyde Park, passed by the United States Embassy and the British Prime Minister Tony Blair‚s residence at Downing Street, and ended at 5pm after speeches in Parliament Square.

The organizers - the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Stop the War Coalition, Muslim Association of Britain and the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament - said between 80,000 to 100,000 had taken part. The police put the number at 20,000.

The organizers had asked the participants to bring children's shoes - commemorating children killed in the war on Lebanon - to be placed outside Downing Street and at nearby memorials to the British war victims.
