Sharia Law Protests In Europe
derF
Interesting article I obtained via e-mail.

Several hundred joined a rally in Londonís Hyde Park organised by One Law for All to show their opposition to Sharia and religious-based laws in Britain and elsewhere and to demand universal rights and secularism.

At the rally, over 20 speakers and performers exposed the discriminatory and brutal nature of religious laws.

On the day, many others took part in simultaneous acts of solidarity with the rally and its demands in 23 countries across the globe.

Photos and video footage of the rally speeches and performances can be seen here:

The protest was covered by several media outlets including on BBC Radio 4's Sunday programme and in an article entitled Just say no to Sharia by Peter Tatchell in Guardian's Comment is Free: http://www.onelaw...coverage/.

One Law for All will continue to push for an end to Sharia and religious laws in Britain. In the coming year, the campaign aims to conduct a survey of women who have been to Sharia courts here, will hold a fundraiser dinner on January 28, 2010 to raise money for the campaign; will host a March 8, 2010 seminar with legislators, lawyers and campaigners to recommend the legal and legislative avenues to ban Sharia and religious courts in Britain; will organise a June 20, 2010 rally against Sharia law; and will hold an October 10, 2010 conference on Sharia Law and Apostasy amongst other activities.

Yeah, I've been receiving their e-mails for several months. Neilmarr turned me on to them.

Hmmm, interesting. I'll check it out.

Hope you don't mind if I make your links clickable, derF.

Not at all Patia. If I had anything between my ears other than a little moisture I might have made them clickable myself.

Thank you, darling!
