Why You Should Attend the Freedom of Expression Rally

If you are able to you should attend the rally because it's cause worth fighting for, and cause we can all be passionate about, a cause that is universal.

Freedom of expression is not a common concept in the Islamic world, or in the communist countries. We should not give weight to this transference of values. If you speak out against the government, or religion, you can be put in jail for years (if you're lucky). Many dissidents are killed or tortured. Iran's most prominent dissident journalist Akbar Ganji has been recently freed from jail after five years. Many of his peers were killed in the 90's.
