The British Humanist Association, with whom Dorset Humanists is affiliated, participated in a rally in Hyde Park, London, calling for secular law and universal human rights. Naomi Phillips, BHA Public Affairs Officer, who spoke at the rally, said, 'Humanists have always been deeply committed to human rights, equality, democracy, and an end to irrelevant discrimination. The BHA has a long history of active engagement in work for an open and inclusive society. In such a society, people of all beliefs would have equal treatment before the law, without exception - and that law must be one that is secular. We are deeply concerned, therefore, by any attempts to uphold in British law judgments made in Sharia tribunals that stray into family or criminal matters and we fundamentally oppose any such moves.'
