    I'll be marching in London ,Lee, with three bus loads
    of people from my relatively small town.
    As we march we'll be heartened to know of the New York
    march and the many others taking place all round the
    world that day.
    We are many - they are few!
    best
    Michael

    It's going to be a massive march - of course the media will try to lie how
    big it really is as usual, but that should not sway people from sharing a
    collective belief that murdering people for power is wrong.
