Abu Dhabi protests what's happening in Gaza

As Israel intensifies its offensive on Gaza, I wonder if people will protest here again tomorrow. Last Friday I went for a rollerblade along the Corniche, where I was met by about 4,000 people marching for peace there. I was a bit shocked - protests do not happen here, save for the rare silent versions - and quite moved. They were joined by demonstrations all over the emirates.
