Alliance for Secularism

Posted By admin On 2014-12-31 @ 22:39 In | Comments Disabled

The Rassemblement pour la laïcité [1] or Alliance for Secularism was launched in 2013 in order to support the adoption of a secularism Charter by the government of Quebec. Draft Bill 60, proposed by the Parti Québécois (PQ) government of the time, was published in November 2013. That bill died with the defeat of the PQ in the elections held on April 7th 2014. Nevertheless, legislation making Quebec a secular state is still urgently needed and the Alliance continues its activities with that goal.

Our organization Atheist Freethinkers has been a participant of the Alliance since its beginnings. Like several other participating organizations, we submitted a brief in support of the proposed Charter to the Commission des institutions of the Quebec National Assembly.

In November of 2016, the RPL launched its new 2016 declaration [2].
