7.20 pm: Around 200 people gather opposite the US Embassy in Madrid. Half a
dozen anti-riot police vans form a protective security ring in front of the
demonstrators. In the crowd there are a lot of CNT flags, some Solidaridad
Obrera flags and some small placards reading "Israeli genocide".
7.45 pm: With around 1,500 people now present, the demo moves off up Calle
Velázquez, to the cry of "Bush and Sharon are killers". The banner leading the
march reads "Freedom for the Palestinian people". Other banners read "Massacre
in Palestine, State terror", "No walls nor oppression, freedom for the
Palestinian people" and one CNT banner reads "Freedom without walls". The
police are calm, both at the start and at the end of the march. Tomorrow's (23
October) anti-fascist demo (meeting at Plaza de España at 7pm) is announced by
megaphone.

8.05 pm: The march continues along Calle Velázquez towards the Israeli Embassy,
where the demo is to end. Demonstrators shout "Freedom for Palestine", "You
fascists are the terrorists", "Break down the prison walls" and "Killers,
killers".

8.25 pm: The demo calmly passes from Calle Velázquez to Calle Príncipe de
Vergara, just before reaching the Israeli Embassy. Cars horns hoot at the
demonstrators who respond with slogans for the freedom of Palestine. The crowd
gathers in front of the heavily-guarded embassy, though some small groups leave
at this stage.
