Some More Activism 

Via Winds of Change, I found this blog: March for Free Expression.

They are organizing a rally in support of freedom of expression, especially against the Islamic assault, at Trafalgar Square, London, 2pm of Saturday 25th March 2006 - with this statement of principle:
The strength and survival of free society and the advance of human knowledge depend on the free exchange of ideas. All ideas are capable of giving offence, and some of the most powerful ideas in human history, such as those of Galileo and Darwin, have given profound religious offence in their time. The free exchange of ideas depends on freedom of expression and this includes the right to criticise and mock. We assert and uphold the right of freedom of expression and call on our elected representatives to do the same. We abhor the fact that people throughout the world live under mortal threat simply for expressing ideas and we call on our elected representatives to protect them from attack and not to give comfort to the forces of intolerance that besiege them.
I think I'll be there.


That makes at least two Italians at the march.

Better than I expected.
