Britons resisting Islam
March for Free Expression
These were the good intentions:
"Ladies and Gentlemen, I direct your attention to the March for Free Expression. These good people are organising a Rally in Trafalgar Square between 2:00pm and 4:00pm on Saturday March 25th 2006.
They have the express intention of standing up against the loud mouthed mobs and their weak willed defacto allies amongst our political classes, who seem to imagine that Freedom of Speech is a relative concept that ought to brushed under the carpet when inconvenient.
Posters and banners are available on the site and donations are welcomed."
The Day After
Hundreds join free speech rally (from BBC)
"Organiser Peter Risdon said 600 people had taken part, while police said 250 people were at the rally at its peak."
Joe says: "My sister rang me, she was at the “rally.” It was a non event. Muslims must see this as another victory."
Dangerously subversivedad says: "Never trust a Leftie to do so much as organise a pissup in a brewery without making sure the beer isnt a Rightwing extremist."
Meanwhile it's not all doom and gloom!

DISMAL TURNOUT AT FREE EXPRESSION MARCH HIGHLIGHTS THE ILL INTENTIONS OF ITS SUPPORTERS
MAC's success in pressuring the organisers of the March for Free Expression to tell people not to bring placards and t-shirts of the cartoons (see below) has resulted a poor turnout of no more than 300. For a nationwide demonstration which had been campaigning for over a month to raise supporters, this is truely pathetic.continues here
As if this was not enough, we have more good news for all our Muslim guests.
Blair - The Qur’an "is practical and way ahead of its time"
"The most remarkable thing about reading the Koran – in so far as it can be truly translated from the original Arabic - is to understand how progressive it is.
It is inclusive. It extols science and knowledge and abhors superstition. It is practical and way ahead of its time in attitudes to marriage, women and governance," he said.
