Update: UNESCO World Philosophy Day in Iran cancelled

I had already commented about UNESCO’s decision to hold this year’s World Philosophy Congress in Iran and about how Iran thanked UNESCO for this.

Apparently, the worldwide protest against UNESCO that ensued has had quite some effect: UNESCO has now cancelled the events planned to be held in Iran and will celebrate World Philosophy Day in Paris instead.

That's a much better venue.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the protest against UNESCO’s initial decision!

But Iran must not despair: Another chance to host an international gathering might come again. Maybe there is some UN organisation that wants to hold a World Torture Congress?
