United Kingdom - Where are you?

Embassies are being attacked in the Middle East, and our flags are burning. More than 30 countries have now printed or shown the Muhammed cartoons, in acts of solidarity and support of free speech and the freedom of press, but the UK press is silent. Why? Out of respect for islam? Or should we call it fear?

Dear reader, want to make a difference? Write the english press and urge them to print the Muhammed drawings. Here are the mail addresses: Sun -NotW -FT -Telegraph -Independent -Express -ITN -Megastar -Sunday Mirror -Mirror -Daily Mail -Guardian. More nationwide + local english newspapers and media can be found and contacted here.

Spending half an hour writing your local media is probably the best time you ever wasted in front of your computer.
