Stand Up for Free Expression

We here at Skepchick got an email from Maryam Namazie asking us to help promote an event being held in London on February 11 called: A Day to Defend Free Expression. Nothing could make us prouder than to endorse this event and ask you, our readers, to participate if you can, spread the word, and maybe even send them some money. Click below to find out more.

There are many threats to freethought in the world today, and the attacks on free expression have been coming fast and furious in the UK. The right to criticize religion must be protected where it exists and fought for in the places where it doesn’t.

Please join us in spreading the word about this event. To read more about this event and find ways you can help, visit Maryam’s blog on the Freethought Blogs Network. Tell ‘em Skepchick sent you and that you support their goals and all the hard work they’re doing. As Maryam puts it so eloquently:

Clearly, the time has come to take a firm and uncompromising stand for free expression and against all forms of threats and censorship.

11 February is our chance to take that stand.

You need to be there.

Enough is enough.

  1. Freedom of expression is one of our most important civil liberties. It should be guarded jealously. To suggest that criticism, even rude and insulting criticism or mockery, of a religion should be outlawed is really alien to me. I can’t even believe there are people who support it.
