Hundreds join free speech rally

I like the way organiser Peter Risdon put it: “We are in favour of free speech and not against Muslims. They are our neighbours and our friends.”

Hundreds of people have peacefully demonstrated in London’s Trafalgar Square to stand up for free speech, rally organisers have said.

The protest was in response to the uproar over cartoons of the Islamic prophet Muhammad, which appeared in some European newspapers.

Organisers said it was not anti-Muslim and warned the British National Party to stay away.

Meanwhile, the Muslim Action Committee staged a counter-protest in Birmingham. Story from BBC NEWS`
