We will assemble at 12.30pm in Temple Place, next to Temple Tube Station.The March will start at 1.00pm and end in a Rally at Richmond Terrace, opposite Downing Street.

    Plaudits for everyone who turned out to show secularism is here to stay.Pity we couldn't muster bigger numbers to benefit from a road march, as marching on the pavements has its distinct disadvantages-a tadge precarious crossing the road!Some excellent,heart rending speeches marred only at one point by a ranting fundamentalist Christian shouting he was "was proud to be a Christian"He must have based his outburst on the Tom Robinson song!

    Fabulous - great camaraderie and a good turnout despite the weather. I had to leave too soon to hear AC Grayling (shame) but the speakers I did hear were excellent! Same time, next year...

    I think we should concentrate most of our protest around some the Mosque. around London to show how upset we are about the barbaric way they treat women Lesbians more so ,and gay men

    We need to be pro-active in supporting and maintaining secularism in Europe.
