March For Free Expression

MarchForFreeExpressionA reminder for readers in or near London: the March For Free Expression is this coming Saturday, March 25th, from 2 to 4 p.m. in Trafalgar Square.

This is not just about the Danish cartoon affair; it’s about the universal right to freedom of speech. If you’re nearby, I recommend that you come over and show your solidarity with the Danes and free people everywhere.

For more information, visit the website, or email the organizers at

There will be a sister rally in Copenhagen City Square on March 25th between 2 and 4 p.m.

I’ve heard that there might be similar solidarity marches scheduled in other parts of Europe. If you have any information about them, please put it in a comment or email it to us, and I’ll do an update to include the details.

I wish there were a sister march here in the USA so that I could go to it. I suppose our collective arse would have to be in the fire like Europe’s is now, before we could manage such an effort.

By the way – as far as I can make out, the Danish flag in the background of the poster is built of Lego. A nice touch, don’t you think?

MarchForFreeExpressionUpdate: Here’s a smaller graphic that fits in most sidebars, for those who would like to use it on their own blog.

The laughable impotence of liberalism

Now they have has decided that, in order not to offend Muslims who plan to participate in the march, the marchers should not carry the Muhammad cartoons that are, after all, the very reason for the march.

And the manifesto communist Maryam Namazie, who sees American "theocracy" as the other pole of terrorism to be fought, is of course an invited speaker. (end of the page)

It's so great to see liberalism self-destruct under the weight of its own contradictions in this way. There is hope for the future!

Only the Bush Administration beats these people in spineless impotent liberalism.

Let liberalism die, or Islam will roll over us.
