An atheism rally in Washington DC
An ambitious campaign to create a census of the world's atheists has been taken offline after just 17 hours after an alleged DDOS attack on the Atheist Alliance International site
The census, which asks atheists from across the world to register with information about themselves, in order to compile research on secular numbers worldwide, was launched by AAI at the weekend.
AAI, which describes itself as s non-profit campaign, is a Washington-based umbrella body of different atheist organisations across the world, including Atheism UK, with directors based in countries from Australia and Canada to the Gambia.
General manager Tanya Smith told The Huffington Post UK the group works to lobby for secularism, especially when it comes to law and education.
