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.
