What is Elisabeth being persecuted for? What is the ECHR? What can we do going forward to protect free speech?
Elisabeth is a Viennese housewife and anti-Jihad activist convicted for "denigrating religious beliefs" after giving a series of seminars about the dangers of radical Islam in 2009. On October 25, 2018, the European Court of Human Rights ruled that her speech is not protected.
The European Court of Human Rights — which has jurisdiction over 47 European countries, and whose rulings are legally binding on all 28 member states of the European Union — has effectively legitimized an Islamic blasphemy code in the interests of "preserving religious peace" in Europe.
