International Blasphemy Rights Day -- Thursday, September 30 International Blasphemy Rights Day takes place every September 30th, to commemorate the publishing of the Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons. The purpose of this event is to set a particular day as a day to support free speech, support the right to criticize and satirize religion, and to oppose any resolutions or laws, binding or otherwise, that discourage or inhibit free speech of any kind [from Center for Inquiry]. We will have a table by the Union and various displays to mark the occasion.
