Blogburst Reminder: Stand Up For Denmark Demonstration In Wash. D.C. Today (Important Update)Topics: Stand Up For Denmark
The Freedom's Zone international blogging community is encouraging all bloggers to help 'Stand Up For Denmark' by immediately writing a post on Christopher Hitchens' call for a demonstration at the Embassy of Denmark, between noon and 1 p.m. today, Feb. 24.
Participants are asked to please be outside the Embassy of Denmark, 3200 Whitehaven Street (off Massachusetts Avenue) between noon and 1 p.m.Please also post that for those who cannot attend the demonstration, they are encouraged to call and email the Danish embassy, today, and often during the weeks to come, and offer their support and appreciation for their standing up to freedom and the right of free speech that is so much a part of our Western culture:
Per Christopher Hitchens, "Quietness and calm are the necessities, plus cheerful conversation. Danish flags are good, or posters reading "Stand By Denmark" and any variation on this theme (such as "Buy Carlsberg/ Havarti/ Lego") The response has been astonishing and I know that the Danes are appreciative. But they are an embassy and thus do not of course endorse or comment on any demonstration. Let us hope, however, to set a precedent for other cities and countries. Please pass on this message to friends and colleagues."
Embassy of DenmarkAfter the date of the event, bloggers are encouraged to post on at least 3 "free speech" issues a week, and also encourage their readers to continue voicing their concern and support for free speech by emailing their friends to help keep the emails of support (to the Danish embassy) going for the Dane's stand on freedom over sharia.

Important Update: Mr. Hitchens also mentioned that people who couldn't join the demonstration of support in Washington, D.C. might want to appear at the closest Danish consulate office. Here is a list of the offices found on the Embassy of Denmark's website. Some of them are clearly not large offices, but some look like they have official diplomatic personnel working there.
