Holocaust revisionist historian Robert Faurisson will apparently stand trial in his native France for statements that he made at the Iran Holocaust conference of December 2006, which cast doubt on the so-called Jewish Holocaust. As you may know, the Gayssot Act of 1990 prohibits and punishes any public doubt about the Holocaust.
The former Prime Minister of France, Dominique de Villepin, was quoted as saying that "We [the French people] are in a democracy. Everyone has the right to express his views freely, while respecting others, of course." This government prosecution of Dr. Faurisson is clearly a violation of his inalienable right to freedom of speech.
Dr. Faurisson is an outstanding and brave scholar that deserves your support. We ask that all American citizens call and write the French embassy in Washington, D.C., protesting this overt violation of Dr. Faurisson's human rights. The address is:
Embassy of France in the United States
4101 Reservoir Road, NW
Washington, D. C. 20007
The phone number is: (202) 944-6000
If you are not an American citizen, we ask that you lodge a protest with the French consulate in your own country on behalf of Dr. Faurisson.
If enough people protest, this very well may have a positive effect.
