Protestors target Google over that video
Thousands insist YouTube should take down offensive film
Google's London office was barricaded on Sunday, after thousands of protestors marched in protest against youTube's continued hosting of the controversial film, The Innocence of Muslims.
The Muslim Action Forum, a group created in response to the film's release, organised the event (promotional poster here). The group's manifesto “Unreservedly condemns the preposterous film vilifying Islam and desecrating the sanctity of the Holy Prophet Mohammad peace be upon Him” and “Calls for all civilised fellow human beings to join in the ‘Campaign for Global Civility’”.
Protestors told the BBC and Telegraph they intend to organise other actions and will persist until the video is removed.
The core of the group's position is that free speech has gone too far when videos like this are acceptable. That attitude, protestors said, mean we have entered an "age of mockery". Protestors therefore made a call for all religions to come together and develop an approach to this kind of material.
YouTube, for its part, continues to insist the film breaches none of its guidelines.
That position has led to the site – and that of parent company Google - being blocked by some nations. ®
"In the days of newsgroups, text would be ROT13 encrypted, marked (in plaintext) "offensive to ...." -- and if you decrypted that ROT13 and got offended, you had no one to blame but yourself.
Could something like that not be done for video, audio, pictures .... ?"
Muslims get offended by knowing it exists. These clowns haven't watched it to get offended. Someone told them it existed and thus they are offended.

Last i checked you didn't need a video to vilify islam. You have plenty of people that do that for you.

Um its free speech for a reason, last i check just cause your view points don't like what anothers is. You have no right to stop them from voicing it. Just cause you don't like it don't mean he or anyone else has no right to say it, If you want to go down this right of free speech has gone to far. I say it has gone to far for you to Burn a US flag, its offensive to me and pretty much every US citizen. How about that one?
Eventually, un brainwashed folks ...
... will start marching against ALL organized religion. These assholes are wasting an AWFUL lot of public money, world-wide, that could be better spent elsewhere.
 Organized religion is the root of all evil.
