A week-long vigil for Gilad Shalit began outside Downing Street today. It has been arranged by the FZY, who deserve a massive round of applause for this and other initiatives for Gilad. It was great to be there today, and to see so many positive reactions from passers-by. People stopped to take a leaflet, to sign the petition and to express their support for Gilad. I spotted Nick Clegg pacing down the road and I managed to pass a leaflet through his throng of advisers and into his hands.
Here is a photograph of us demonstrating for Gilad today.
