War and Peace

Listening: CD of 'Eats, Shoots & Leaves' by Lynne Truss

The escalating violence in the Middle East is occupying many bloggers and news sources.
The Green Party male principal speaker Keith Taylor has spoken out about the disproportionate Israeli response. The Stop The War Coalition is arranging emergency demonstrations in London, Manchester, Edinburgh and Glasgow this weekend.
Meanwhile my fellow Green Left supporter Jim Jay, of the Socialist Unity bloggers has been attending the Radical Activist Network conference, while another SUN blogger attended the Tolpuddle Rally. Radical Sci-Fi writer Ken McLeod is back blogging after a break and reports on attending the SWP's 'Marxism 2006' event in London, an event also reported on from a different angle by a Socialist Unity blogger.
Finally a plethora of comment across the British political blogosphere on the declaration of a challenge for the labour leadership (when Blair steps down) from the leading figure in the Campaign Group of left-wing Labour MPs, John McDonnell.
