Despite inclement weather, about 45 people gathered this afternoon (31st Aug) outside Abington Park museum, Northampton, as part of a protest to defend free speech and rational thought. The protest, organised by Northampton Socialist Forum, came after an information sign about Darwinism at the museum was partially covered following a complaint by what appears to be a Christian fundamentalist.
Pat Markey explained the events leading up to the protest, and writer/artist Alan Moore gave an entertaining speech about religion, free speech, and censorship.
A number of people left their contact details in the event of further campaigning being necessary to ensure that the museum information is not censored by religion. Thanks to those to helped make it a successful event at short notice.
