The struggle for the separation of church and state is also the struggle for a free and fraternal society.
The universal aspiration to freedom of conscience winds like a thread through all history on all continents – USA, Mexico. Spain, Portugal, Russia, France…
For us, as freethinkers, this struggle for separation can only be international. Our predecessors understood this as did Charles Bradlaugh, who founded with others in London in 1880 the first International Association of Freethinkers.
In Oslo, in August 2011, we want to revive this tradition by refounding the International Association of Freethinkers.
