UK - Freedom of Expression march

According to this yesterdays first Freedom of Expression march went rather well.

The rally in Trafalgar Square today was attended by about 1,000 (at most by my estimate) very disparate people and was a worthy effort for a poorly funded ad-hoc team of folks.

Too bad it was pouring down rain or maybe more would have turned out. Still not bad for a march put together by a few individuals with no financial support.

And he notes this about the police:

On two occasions, The Plod tried to prevent certain signs being shown (one featured the Mohammed Cartoons on a placard from the Iranian Communist Party and another showed a mask of Tony Blair over a Nazi symbol). These incidents at a 'pro-freedom of expression' rally, and the presence of the police taking pictures of the crowd, were a useful reminder of the deadening hand of the state and just how precarious the state of civil liberties in Britain are.

Indeed. Especially since Britain is being turned into an Islamic state.
