Media Censorship, Nova Huta, and the March for Life

Brilliant analysis, over at American Notebook, on the media blackout of the March for Life.

In a nutshell:  Communists tried to make people of faith not exist in Nova Huta, Poland.
MSM tries to make the Pro-Life Movement not exist by censoring coverage of the annual March for Life.

Sursum Corda. I would add this interesting connection between Nova Huta and the March for Life. Nova Huta did build a church. In thanksgiving they gave their priest and leader, Karoly Wojtyla (now Blessed JPII) a monstrance which he in turn presented to Mother Angelica, foundress of EWTN, which annually broadcasts the March for Life.

I have been a member of the board of the Finnish Alliance. In one meeting I heard in my own ears, when chairman Heikki Tala told the board that Helsinki District Court was ready to ban our organization! An official had told this threat to our chairman in a meeting in the Ministry for Internal Affairs.

This happened before the New York Times interviewed our chairman and published an article about Finland on December 25, 2005. This article mentioned our organization.

As far as I have understood, president Halonen, Prime Minister Vanhanen and other leading politicians were behind this threat to ban the Finnish Alliance - without any reason!

A government's threat to ban a peaceful organization (because of its opinions) violates the principles of democracy.
