Freedom of Speech Rally: MoToons BANNED!!

Shocking. I couldn't believe what I was reading....

No Cartoons Welcome at Freedom of Expression Rally

I wasn't about to turn up with cartoons in all honesty. But Drinking From Home is PISSED, and I mean PISSED! He's taking a 500 mile round trip to go to the rally, he's already bought non-refundable tickets. He had no intention of turning up with the cartoons, but in response to this massive U-turn by voltaire, he too has changed his mind!

The guy has probably had a hundred death threats by now, by saying this he saves his skin and steps back from the spotlight. But there is no law against waving a drawing around, so just go and celebrate free speech anyway - he probably wants it that way. The organiser gets the free speech rally he intended AND gets to live.

This is what happens when we leave other people to do our organising for us. If we meet in our own communities with our friends and neighbours we wil learn what we can agree to, what others need, and what we are willing to do to make our victory certain. If we rely on others to do what we should do ourselves we will fall into one trap after another.

If we meet on Thursday evenings and get to know each other, then we will save oursevles endless greif, and we will also make ourselves stronger than any opponents we will encounter.

We meet this eveing at Vancouver Public Library's atrium from 7-9:00 pm in Vancouver, Canada. Where will you be?
