Tatchell to speak at Anti-Vatican Rally

Peter Tatchell is to speak at a rally against the Pope's planned visit in London, this Sunday.

Timed to coincide with a demonstration against the Vatican and its influence in Italy, the rally is organised by those who want a secular Europe free of religious interference in its laws and its governance.

Program of the demonstration:

- Assemble: 1pm at Westminster Cathedral (Ambrosden Ave, by the side of the Cathedral)
- March: 2pm - 3pm from Westminster Cathedral to the Italian embassy
- Rally: 3pm - 5pm at the Italian embassy (Grosvenor square)

Speakers at the Italian embassy (3pm) :

* Bob Churchill (British Humanist Association),
* Derek Lennard (Gay and Lesbian Humanist Association)
* Maryam Namazie (One Law for All)
* Gerard Phillips (Protest The Pope)
* David Pollock (European Humanist Federation)
* Terry Sanderson (National Secular Society)
* Peter Tatchell (OutRage!)
* Josh Kutchinsky (Central London Humanist Group)

To meet for the rally, go to Westminster Cathedral (not Westminster Abbey) at 1pm on Sunday February 14th.
