Why would the media report on it?  It's not a conspiracy, it's just that it's irrelevant.

Because it was a big thing apparently. A big convention in Melbourne. Other big conventions get a mention. Stamps, comics . . . . .

Oh and dont call me a conspiracy theorist. Those ppl have to believe everything out there. Worse than religious ppl.

Hang on a sec ... Isn't there something wrong here? As an opponent of organised religion, I believe that organised religion of any kind is wrong / bullshyte .. any organisation that preaches about peoples beliefs is in my opinion a religion... isn't this group now just another religion  .... ??? Seems to go against what i think a real atheism is .... admittedly it could just be me ...

I dont know anything abotu it really. Only found out about it today - way after the fact. My first thought was that there are a couple "radicals" in there making a group so theres an opponent for the "Family first" things but really I dunno. Maybe its just a bunch of like minded ppl getting together. Like a stamp show or a comic convention . . . .

Apparently the star of the show was an admitted liar:

Outspoken Dutch MP admits lying to gain asylum


...

AYAAN Hirsi Ali, a Somali-born Dutch politician known for her outspoken criticism of Islam, is leaving parliament and moving to the US after admitting she lied to gain asylum in the Netherlands.

Ms Hirsi Ali, 36, sought asylum in the Netherlands in 1992, claiming to be escaping from an arranged marriage. She was granted Dutch citizenship in 1997 and elected to parliament in 2003...

Ayaan Hirsi Ali's lies

Ayaan Hirsi Ali With Jewish-backed anti-Islam Activist Robert Spencer

It turns out that Hirsi Ali (or Hirsi Magan to give her right name), the one-time collaborator of Theo Van Gogh and MP for the right-wing anti-migrant party the VVD, told a lot of porkies to claim asylum back in 1992.

As one critic put it: "To secure for herself a promising career she besmirched her family and the Islamic background that gave her a good education. She deliberately painted a black picture of Islam that she never experienced as such, only to profit from it. The Dutch party she is an MP for, the VVD, knew she had lied. They used her in their anti-Islamist and anti-left campaign. And Ayaan Hirsi 'Ali' presented the world with a fancy story it very much liked to hear."

Hirsi Ali has now been offered a job in the US with the neocon American Enterprise Institute, starting in September. Muslims in the Netherlands will be glad to see the back of her. Nasr Joemman, secretary of the Contact Organisation for Muslims and Government, said that Hirsi Ali's attacks on Islam had caused "a lot of damage". He added: "I celebrate that she is leaving the Netherlands. I hope that by her departure we can move forward with building a harmonious society."

When the star attraction for the  event is an admitted liar, I think it is relevant.

She is billed here on the atheist convention website:
