What a great idea – a march in support of free speech in Trafalgar Square:
We, a group of individuals of no particular political leaning, are calling on organisations and other individuals to support a march for freedom of expression to be held in London and if possible simultaneously in other cities of the world.
We are doing this for two reasons. Firstly, to celebrate the precious gift of free expression that was entrusted to us by all those who fought so long and hard. Secondly, to remind our politicians of their duty to fearlessly protect free expression against all who wish to undermine it.
We wish to point out that this march and rally is not an attack on Muslims or members of other religious groups. We in fact welcome all members of all religions who believe as we do in the paramount importance of free expression.
Let’s stand up, be counted and be seen.
Hopefully more in the British blogosphere will pick up this story, and turn it into a London repeat of the recent US demonstrations in support of Denmark.
