Christopher Hitchens, writing in Slate, is organizing a rally in D.C. outside the Danish embassy:
Please be outside the Embassy of Denmark, 3200 Whitehaven Street (off Massachusetts Avenue) between noon and 1 p.m. this Friday, Feb. 24. Quietness and calm are the necessities, plus cheerful conversation. Danish flags are good, or posters reading "Stand By Denmark" and any variation on this theme (such as "Buy Carlsberg/Havarti/Lego"). The response has been astonishing and I know that the Danes are appreciative. But they are an embassy and thus do not of course endorse or comment on any demonstration. Let us hope, however, to set a precedent for other cities and countries. Please pass on this message to friends and colleagues.
It's only a short cab ride from the K Street corridor, and several blocks' walk from Dupont Circle or Woodley Park.
Hope you can make it -- if you're planning to, please note this in the comments, so that other Conspiracy readers will feel emboldened.
