New Orleans and Lebanon

July 21st, in downtown New Orleans more than a hundred
demonstrators from a wide range of organizations protested US diplomatic and
financial support for the Israeli seige of Lebanon and Gaza. The
demonstration linked local issues with the current horrors in the Middle
East. "Gaza, New Orleans and Lebanon, People die while Bush looks on,"
was one of the chants.
Link to some of the radio coverage of the demonstration:
