Protest in London against Hatred Bill on October 11. Yaqub Masih
05 Oct 2005
Parliament Square, Tuesday 11 Oct is the venue for the protest. This protest is about pulling people together to be a united voice in opposition to this proposed law. More than 100 Christian groups, churches and denominations are planning a full weekend of prayer and protest against the legislation, which has been seen by many critics as a threat to freedom of speech as well as a threat to evangelism for religious groups. The protest will conclude with a mass protest rally on Tuesday 11 October in Parliament Square at 1pm. Despite large protests, the legislation has already passed through the House of Commons, and now it just remains for the House of Lords to approve the Bill for it to come into effect as law in Britain.
