I would urge all readers of Harry’s Place to attend the Amnesty solidarity demonstration this Saturday, in Trafalgar Square.
It is a small point, but I am unhappy that the coalition supporting this demonstration includes the Muslim Council of Britain. The Muslim Council of Britain is a Jamaat-e-Islami controlled organisation, which favours the very opposite of liberal democracy. Jamaat-e-Islami members are implicated in serious war crimes committed against Bangladeshis in the War of Liberation. It is inappropriate that such an organisation should be participating in this sort of event.
