Dublin Club cancels David Ray Griffin's 9/11/07 lecture Due to Threat of Protest
David Ray Griffin's lecture scheduled for September 11th at the Sugar Club in Dublin, Ireland, has been canceled by the club manager. The club manager writes, "members of the local Jewish Community are planning to stage a protest outside The Sugar Club on September 11th 2007 because of the nature of the talk you planned to stage here."
An email exchange between Morgan Stack of Ireland, and the club manager can be read here;
David Ray Griffin is not an anti-semite, nor does he equate 9/11 skepticism with a "Jewish" or "Zionist" conspiracy. So the protesters appear to be misinformed about the "nature of the talk", and now this has blown into the cancellation of an important lecture with very little time to secure and properly publicize a new venue.
Griffin is one of the authors featured in 9/11 and American Empire Vol. II: Christians, Jews and Muslims Speak Out. It should be made clear to the club manager and owners that this is a bad decision. Please write to the club manager and ask him to reconsider. The protesters could give be given free tickets, (as long as they don't disrupt), so they can see that their fears are unfounded. If they hold their questions till the Q&A session, I'll bet that Griffin will answer them.
