The Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain (CEMB) will be 5 years old next month.

To celebrate the work, significance and achievements of this unique organisation, we are holding a fundraising luncheon on Saturday 23 June 2012 in London from 13.00-16:00 hours.

The luncheon will be a wonderful opportunity to meet other like-minded individuals and enjoy a three-course lunch, great entertainment and speakers in an intimate setting whilst supporting our work.

In the five years since our establishment, the CEMB has been a beacon of hope for thousands of ex-Muslims who have renounced Islam and religion. It has helped to break the taboo and challenge Islamism, which punishes apostasy with the death penalty.

And during this time, we have done it all – from helping to return a young woman back to Britain from North Africa where she had been sent as punishment for her ‘disobedience’ to securing the release from detention and the right to asylum for many across Europe. We have also given large numbers of people a new ‘home’ via our forum and meet-up group. Moreover, we have helped to highlight the plight of ex-Muslims, apostates and blasphemers internationally, including Indonesian atheist Alex Aan currently in prison and German-Iranian rapper Shahin Najafi facing a death fatwa from Iran’s ayatollahs. The One Law for All campaign against Sharia law in Britain, which we initiated at our first international conference, has also made waves across the globe as has our unequivocal defence of free expression, equality and citizenship rights.

None of this could have been done without your help. So thank you!

We hope to have another successful five years with your continued support. You can do this by attending the 23 June luncheon. Ticket(s) are £45.00 per person or £35.00 for students/unwaged. To purchase tickets, send a cheque made payable to CEMB to BM Box 1919, London WC1N 3XX or pay via Paypal or Worldpay. Please make sure to include your email address and telephone number so that we can provide further details of the venue upon receipt of payment.

If you can’t come to the luncheon but would like to help, please send in a donation. On 23 June, why not organise a coffee morning or a luncheon party at your home to raise some extra money for the CEMB? No amount is too small and helps us help others and make a real difference.

We hope to see you at the fundraising luncheon or hear from you about how you can help us with the important work that lies ahead.

If you have any questions about the luncheon or a fundraising event you want to hold in your own home, please feel free email me at exmuslimcouncil@gmail.com or call at +44 (0)7719166731.

Thanks again.

Best wishes,

  1. Will you have security on site in case the loons try to disrupt the event? I am thinking of the many cases when lectures by Lars Vilks have been disrupted here in Scandinavia (yes, I know Vilks is not the same thing as an ex-muslim, but the islamists are not likely to make a distinction).

    Since those thugs are cowards, a few uniforms will have a deterring effect.

    1. I know we really do need something like the CEMB/ One law for All there – that opposes Islamism from a progressive perspective and defends Muslims and immigrants. I would be happy to help anyone who wants to start something. Interested?

      1. I would be except that I know no one else. I am sure others must be around. I just don’t know who to reach out to.

        1. The CEMB forum might be a good place to start. There are a lot of like-minded people there – you can access it via community on our website. Once you find a few more people I can give you more practical help and support to set up. I’ll keep a look out too for anyone from the US now that you are interested.
