NEW YORK, June 20: Human rights activists from three nations will converge in London on June 29, Armed Forces Day in England, to pay respects to Drummer Lee Rigby, the British service man who was brutally murdered in a jihad attack on May 22
Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer of the U.S.-based American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) will join Anders Gravers of the Denmark-based Stop Islamisation of Europe (SIOE) and Tommy Robinson and Kevin Carroll of the English Defense League to lay a wreath at a memorial to Rigby at 2pm on Saturday, June 29th.
Geller, AFDI’s Executive Director, said in a statement: “We call on all freedom lovers to join us. We will bring the Stars and Stripes, as well as British and Danish flags, and participate in Armed Forces Day memorial commemorations. We will pay our respects to Lee Rigby by placing a wreath at his memorial, in his memory and in memory of his service.”
Geller explained: “All Americans feel his slaughter most keenly; this wound is particularly raw, as it came on the heels of the jihad slaughter in Boston. We are glad of this opportunity to stand in solidarity with our British brothers and sisters.”After the wreath laying, Geller, Spencer, Robinson, Carroll and Gravers will proceed to the Armed Forces memorial event at the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich, where Rigby served.
Geller, Spencer, Robinson, Carroll and Gravers are all members of the President’s Council of Stop Islamization of Nations (SION), an international coalition of human rights activists. SION stands for:
The freedom of speech – as opposed to Islamic prohibitions of “blasphemy” and “slander,” which are used effectively to quash honest discussion of jihad and Islamic supremacism;
The freedom of conscience – as opposed to the Islamic death penalty for apostasy;
The equality of rights of all people before the law – as opposed to Sharia’s institutionalized discrimination against women and non-Muslims.
