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

Your contribution supports independent journalism
Please take a moment to consider this. Now, more than ever, people are reading Geller Report for news they won't get anywhere else. But advertising revenues have all but disappeared. Google Adsense is the online advertising monopoly and they have banned us. Social media giants like Facebook and Twitter have blocked and shadow-banned our accounts. But we won't put up a paywall. Because never has the free world needed independent journalism more.
Everyone who reads our reporting knows the Geller Report covers the news the media won't. We cannot do our ground-breaking report without your support. We must continue to report on the global jihad and the left's war on freedom. Our readers’ contributions make that possible.
Geller Report's independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our work is critical in the fight for freedom and because it is your fight, too.
