Calling on all Dutch Embassies to free Geert Wilders

13 01 2010

[ UPDATE: Welcome Blazing Cat Fur, Sharpe Stick, MooseandSquirrel.ca, and Five Feet Of Fury readers! ]

Dear readers,

This is a list of all of the Dutch embassies and consulates in Canada – or, if you dig for a little bit, around the world.

Now, as many of you are undoubtedly aware, the Dutch politician Geert Wilders is going to be going on trial for ‘hate speech’ this January, on the 20th. His crime? Words, writings, a film. Defaming a religion; offending the wrong people, in the wrong country.

Some people might think that a man going on trial for his words is fitting in a modern, Western nation. Others, who may perhaps harbor more respect for the Western tradition of liberalism and freedom of speech, might find this idea abhorrent and repellent and repugnant.

If you are one of those who, like myself, find this idea – that a man can go on trial for his words – repugnant, then may I suggest that you email, or phone, or fax, or write the Dutch consulate nearest you, and say just that. Tell them that the Dutch government, which for so long was a bastion of free speech and liberalism, must return to that tradition, and free Geert Wilders from this political farce, this trial for spoken words and strongly-held opinions.

Thank you,

Walker Morrow, for defendgeertwilders.wordpress.com
