This year the Organisation of the Islamic Conference, linking 57 countries with majority or significant Muslim populations, will once again introduce the Defamation of Religions Resolution in the United Nations.

It allows governments the power to determine which religious views can and can’t be expressed in their country, and it gives the state the right to punish those who express ‘unacceptable’ religious views as they see fit. So in effect, it makes persecution legal. This year the Resolution could be defeated, with your help.
