There are many reasons to attend the March here are a selection suggested by our supporters
Firstly, we don't have a Secular Europe. Religious discrimination against women. Relgious discrimination against LGBT people. The abuse of children by the clergy. Bishops in House of Lords. Religious institutions preying on the poor and vulnerable. The teaching of Creationism in Schools. Religious Schools full stop. Community services being run by religious organisations.The religious anti abortion lobby. Religious influence on the BMA on the health care of others. FGM. Religiously motivated male circumcision. The right to dignity in dying. The abuse of women and children falsely accused of witchcraft. Death threats against ex Muslims living in Europe. Sharia Law being practised in the UKForced marriages in the UK. Freedom of speech. Freedom of expression. Showing solidarity with the rest of the world where individuals and groups are struggling to achieve basic human rights.
We also march to celebrate success with Gay and Humanist Marriage in the UK. And we march to show that we are proud and happy to live a Secular life.
We hope you join us to make the 2013 Secular Europe March a great success.
