Yesterday SIOE (Stop Islamisation of Europe) commemorated the anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon by staging a demonstration in front of Lambeth Palace in London.
Cimmerian was present for the occasion, and sent us a set of photos along with his account of what happened. Click on any of the photos to see larger versions (plus additional images), or go to Aeneas’ Picasa site.
Below is Cimmerian’s report:
Here are some photos from SIOE’s 9/11 demo outside Lambeth Palace, London home of the Archbishop of Canterbury, a short paddle down the Thames from the Houses of Parliament. The palace was chosen to protest the Archbishop’s recent comments in which he claimed that acceptance of Sharia Law in the UK was ‘unavoidable’.
The protest was organised by Stephen Gash of Stop the Islamisation of Europe (SIOE) and Anders Gravers of Stop the Islamisation of Denmark (SIAD). Those gathered in support included representatives from the Center for Vigilant Freedom and new anti-Islamisation group Nemosini. Christian groups and Iranian exiles were also well represented.

Protesters applauded speeches made by the organisers and other concerned speakers including Baroness Cox. Especially moving was a speech by an Iranian exile who recalled that when he was a child none of the adults in his family circle believed that the Islamists would ever take control of their country. He warned against similar complacency in the UK.
Other sources who were present at Lambeth yesterday say that the Archbishop’s guests were heckled by the demonstrators as they arrived in their limousines for dinner.
