A mirror from…
On March 31, 2012, a group of Counterjihad activists will meet in Aarhus, Denmark for “a public meeting to talk about issues such as Sharia Law, Halal, Immigration and the continuing Islamification of Europe”. The meeting is being sponsored by the European Freedom Initiative and will be hosted by the Danish Defence League.
The event has no website. It does, however, have a Facebook page, and on it you will notice that Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff is listed is one of the scheduled speakers.
This information is incorrect.
Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff did not agree to speak at the event in Aarhus, nor did she discuss her possible attendance at the event with the organizers. In fact, she was never even contacted by the organizers.
When she learned that her name was being used in promotional materials as a confirmed speaker, she wrote to the contact address for the website displaying the flyer and asked that her name be removed. No response was forthcoming, and the information on the Facebook page has not been updated.
Therefore she has asked me to correct the record here at Gates of Vienna: Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff is NOT speaking in Aarhus on March 31, nor will she be attending the event.
Elisabeth’s full statement about this unfortunate situation is below:
Back in early January I was contacted by a member of the English Defence League who asked whether I would tentatively be willing to attend a demonstration in Aarhus in late March.
I checked my calendar and told him that as of that moment, I was available. At no time did I voice an agreement to attend.
In the interval since, I have not heard from anyone involved in organizing this event, nor did I ever agree to attend. In fact, the greater my inability to obtain any reliable information about the event, the more I was certain I would not travel to Denmark.
Additionally, I have asked those who seemed to have contact with organizers to immediately remove my name from posters, flyers, online advertisements and YouTube announcements. As of this writing, my request has not been honored.
The organizers have thus used my name without my approval and without my confirmed attendance.
I will repeat my stand on this demonstration: I will NOT attend the planned demo in Aarhus on March 31, 2012, and have never planned to do so.
