This year Universal Children's Day was celebrated in the UK with "No Sharia Law Protest".
Maryan Namazie, the rally organiser, told the crowd:
"Our rally is being held to mark Universal Children's Day and the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. We are not defending western values. We are defending universal humanitarian values. Sharia adversely affects the rights, lives and freedoms of countless human beings across the world. Opposing Sharia law is a crucial step in defending universal equal rights and secularism, and showing real solidarity with people living under and resisting Sharia."--Based on a report from Peter Tatchell
Atheists and Believers Finally Reach A Consensus, Muslims, non-Muslims, Ex, Muslims and atheists united for this protest held on the 21st November 2009.
“Parents are just the guardians of the soul, a precious gem born to shine. It is the guardian’s responsibility to ensure that gem is not reshaped, but allowed to BE its natural state. The world is your oyster and you are the pearl inside the shell of love”.
