Today I have been using twitter to encourage the humanist community and all who support free speech and freedom of religion to show solidarity for bloggers and their supporters in Bangladesh (see previous blog).
Please feel free to use this meme in social media, placards and blogs to show your support.
On twitter spoke to Andrew Copson, chief executive of the British Humanist Association asking if an organised solidarity/protest event would happen outside Bangladesh Embassies.
He has said he will contact IHEU (International Humanist European Union) to help coordinate such an action. UPDATE 9/4/13: IHEU campaign page
In the meantime please encourage your own national humanist, atheist and free thinker groups to speak out. Write to the Bangladesh Ambassador – a bulging mailbag gets reported back.
Write to your Foreign Secretary demanding he conveys in the strongest possible terms disapproval for the imprisonment of these bloggers.
