One Law for All organises day of action for freedom of expression

You might like to sign on to this endorsements page (I am one of the original endorsers).

Freedom of speech and expression - especially, but not solely, the freedom to criticise and satirise religion - is under constant, ongoing attack. We need to say, "Enough is enough!" and push back against it. Signing this page is one small thing you can do.

(It hardly needs repeating, does it, that I have a long chapter on this very issue in Freedom of Religion and the Secular State, complete with discussion of "Islamophobia", etc.)

Speaking of your book, what's up with the state of ordering it on Amazon? It says it came out on the 17th, and is available for pre-order???

No idea, to be honest. But these dates always have a bit of give and take in them. People who pre-ordered from Amazon UK already have copies, I understand, so maybe it's just the vagaries of physically transporting copies to different locations.
