World Socialist Web Site: Thousands Oppose Gaza Flotilla Attack in London

By Rick Pearcey • June 7, 2010, 08:43 PM

Zach Reed writes at the World Socialist Web Site:

Upwards of 10,000 people marched from Downing Street to the Israeli Embassy in London on June 5 to condemn the criminal attack on the Gaza aid flotilla by Israel on May 31. The attack, which occurred in international waters, saw the murder of nine Turkish civilians on board a Turkish-flagged ship attempting to deliver much-needed aid to Gaza, which remains under an Israeli blockade.

Here's what's really going on, according to Mr. Reed: "In reality, the world’s major powers continue to defend Israel because they pursue their own criminal imperialist ambitions and represent the same class forces."
