From Sharjah

I received this message from Sharjah: "A peaceful march for gaza and Palestine in Sharjah UAE, has been attacked and violently stopped from proceeding. This is happening right now in the buheira area. Journalist from several local tv and newspaper journalists were attacked and threatened, no serious injuries reported until now but stand off between protesters and the
police have been ongoinging for the last 2 hours atleast. Will try to get pictures if possible. Trying to alert international media like BBC and al jazeera please help. We can't stay quiet any more. We just want to be able to show our solidarity and our grief."
