Angolan Embassy, Dorset St, London. Fri 29 Nov 2013
I'd gone to the mosque but there was no sign of a march there
The protesters seem to have started closer to the embassyand had arrived before me
and were making their protest noisly from the side of the Dorset Street opposite the embassy
'Angola Regime Enemy of Islam'
'Muslims Rise Up! Establish the Sharia' and 'Islam will Dominate the World' seemed slogans not related to
the human rights abuses in Angola, but suggested a similar lack of tolerance to that of the Angolan regime.
As too did some of the speeches and chanted slogans at the protest
It seemed not to be a protest about freedom to worship, but one about 'eradicating secularism' and imposing a single religion
While the Angolans seem to believe that freedom of religion means freedom to be Catholic or Baptist or other Christian
the protesters seem to want to impose Islam. 'Islam will Dominate the World''
And their aim seems not just to make their particular version of Islam the sole religion
but to - as the poster says 'Ban democracy' and 'Implement Islam!'
