A coalition of four different groups led by Sharia Watch UK will be hosting a Draw Mohammed event in London on September 18. Geert Wilders, Anne-Marie Waters, Paul Weston, and Charlie Klendjian will be among the featured speakers.

Readers are welcome to share the above poster on Facebook and Twitter, and by email.

Below is the announcement sent out yesterday by the organizers of the exhibition:

Support the “Draw Mohammed” Cartoon Exhibition in London!

In September 2015 Sharia Watch UK, Vive Charlie and Liberty GB will host the UK “Draw Mohammed” cartoon exhibition in central London. The event has been organised in honour of the cartoonists, bloggers and artists around the world who risk their lives in defence of free expression, and of those who have been murdered in this cause.

The organisers are delighted to announce that Geert Wilders, leader of the Dutch Freedom Party, will speak at the event.

Anne-Marie Waters, Director of Sharia Watch UK, said: “It is vital, in this era of censorship and fear, that we stand together in defiance and demand our right to free expression. We will not, and cannot, succumb to violent threats. The outlook for our democracy depends on the actions we take today. We owe it to future generations to pass on the freedom we have enjoyed.”

To help make this event take place, we welcome your donations, large or small. Help us defend freedom of expression in Britain!

  1. This is encouraging news. That said, and not wanting to be too pessimistic, but in the country that banned Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer, what are the chances of this too being banned? Security concerns, you know – the excuse that was used to stop a similar event in Ottawa, Canada a couple of months ago, as detailed here on GoV.

  2. I see Tommy Robinson might have a part in it. I know the mere mention of his name sends certain people into a frenzy. I think we ought to make , nay cajole, the United Kingdom to allow Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer to attend. After all their universities allow muslim haters bybthe hundreds to spew their venom. What say ye? In the 800 year commeration of Magna Carta, should free people not speak up…..again.? Considering what the brave people of the UK have put up with over these sad years with the EU, it would be good to hear their OWN voices again, after all that was what 800 years of Magna Carta was all about. Wasn’t it?

  3. Anne Marie Waters is a UKIP member. What has Mr Farage got to say about this? Perhaps someone should ask him. He should be among the speakers, of course.

  4. I (unfortunately) agree with Jason’s comment. This event will be stopped dead, using whatever underhanded means the British establishment can come up with. “Security Concerns” will probably be the excuse. Free speech in the U.K. has been dead for quite some time now. Glad I left.

    • If so then what they will be teaching people is that they need to create “security concerns” in order to get any opposing event shut down. If group A (such as jihadists) is allowed to say or do whatever but group B (such as counter-jihadists) gets shut down due to threats then it’s only a matter of time before some people decide to create security concerns for group A.

      This is probably already happening to some extent but shutting down a “group B” event will further escalate it, possibly to the point where obvious evidence starts showing up in the press. The only reason this hasn’t happened earlier is because group B is inherently more peaceful than group A.

      • I agree, Nimrod. People do learn from experience (even if it can be a painfully slow process sometimes!) One of my favorite Mark Steyn quotes (taken from one of my favorite Mark Steyn articles, “The Slow Death of Free Speech” – for anyone who hasn’t read it, I would highly recommend doing so):

        “[If] a Quebec separatist or an Australian republican can’t challenge the constitutional order through public advocacy, the only alternative is to put on a black ski-mask and skulk around after dark blowing stuff up”.

        I think that, clearly, his point is generally applicable.
