UPDATE: I’ve put up a much better video of the speech; this just appeared on YouTube, and you can actually see Richard this time. I’m told that, despite the large turnout, the British press largely ignored this protest.
There was a big turnout at the Protest the Pope rally in London today: I recall that they predicted 2,000 people but more than 10,000 turned out. Here’s Dawkins addressing the rally; as you might expect, he goes after Ratzi’s attacks on atheists and his claim that we’re responsible for Hitler.
Dawkins has become quite the firebrand. He did read his talk, but the cadence and substance were very good.
