The Brussels Declaration

On 9 July 2012, the International Civil Liberties Alliance presented the International Human Rights and Freedom of Speech Conference in the European Parliament in Brussels. The conference was organised in response to the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC)'s "Istanbul Process," which seeks to institute a global blasphemy law under sharia doctrine that would ban freedom of expression worldwide. The principal outcome of ICLA’s July 2012 Conference in the European Parliament was the "Brussels Declaration to Safeguard Individual Liberties and Human Rights."  

The Brussels Journal In The News

A quote from Belgian newspaper Gazet van Antwerpen, 27 July 2011:

Security services in our country will file a case with federal prosecutors about a possible link between The Brussels Journal and the Norwegian killer Anders Behring Breivik. (...) Security services would like to shed some light on a few things. In the past few years, The Brussels Journal has published a number of articles which also appear in "2038 A European Declaration of Independence", the manifest that Breivik distributed just before his attacks. (...) Now that security services have compiled a dossier, the prosecutor must decide whether an investigation will be started.

Freedom To Be Earned And Refreshed Daily

A quote from Geert Wilders in The Wall Street Journal, 22 February 2011:

My trial in Amsterdam is not about me, but about freedom of speech in Europe. As Dwight D. Eisenhower, Europe's liberator from Nazism, once warned, freedom "must be daily earned and refreshed—else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die." Today in Europe, freedom is being neither earned nor refreshed.
