We Defy Terrorism - London March

Note the features of a site called PledgeBank and this copy of its post on the London bombings:

"I will at the earliest opportunity, assemble in London in a public demonstration of respect to the victims of the July 7 atrocity, defiance of the murderers who carried it out and solidarity with the people of London but only if 2500 other people will too." - The Sharpener team

Deadline: 15th July 2005.
155 people have signed up, 2345 more needed

More details:

In the aftermath of the Madrid bombings in 2004, millions of Spaniards took to the streets to show their solidarity with those who had suffered and to show those who had committed these terrible acts that the people would not live in fear.

We at The Sharpener have no experience of organising marches. This pledge is to start the popular movement, to make people remember that the streets of London belong to them and not to terrorists.

We hope very much, that with support pledged here, a kind and knowledgeable person will take up the reins and give us all this opportunity to come together.

Anything wrong with this pledge? Tell us!

P.S. I've left a few comments at Lord Clive's post on the London bombs - together with a link to an interesting piece at Global Voices entitled Is it a Muslim Problem? Please feel free to join in the discussion. It's interesting to read different points of view.
