During a trip to see 10 Downing Street (where Tony Blair lives/works) and London's Millenium Bridge, a protest on Israli bombing of Lebanon marched through London. See photos of all of the above, below.

Note to self, if planning a protest put the small children at the front - it's a great topic for news photos and public opinion

Lots of people protesting...

Imagine...the Socialist Worker says Bush is the "World's #1 Terrorist" - and I thought they were such good friends

Protesters threw children's shoes at 10 Downing Street to shame Tony Blair into miraculously controlling world politics...he's never been very good at that though

St. Paul's Cathedral - did you know this was the site of the song Feed the Birds in Mary Poppins? Here you can see a spire where tourists are gathered. The sun just happened to peek out for a bit around when I was taking photos of the building.
