Let’s have Some Civil Disobedience

Not that I would encourage people to armed conflict, but I would like to see a show of determination in Brussels on the 11th of September. Let’s all turn up anyway.
The thing is, that the organisers of the demo have been told they are not allowed to demonstrate. Therefore the organisers cannot encourage us to go there on their behalf. The task now falls to the bloggers that have followed the course of events leading to this atrocious decision by the dhimmi mayor of Brussels to encourage everyone to turn out for the day. We will, and can, all still go there as individuals. To quote the Charter of fundamental rights of the European Union:
Freedom of expression and information
1. Everyone has the right to freedom of expression. This right shall include freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart information and ideas without interference by public authority and regardless of frontiers.
2. The freedom and pluralism of the media shall be respected.
Freedom of assembly and of association
1. Everyone has the right to freedom of peaceful assembly and to freedom of association at all levels, in particular in political, trade union and civic matters, which implies the right of everyone to form and to join trade unions for the protection of his or her interests.
2. Political parties at Union level contribute to expressing the political will of the citizens of the Union.
That is what we must do now. Assemble peacefully outside the building in Brussels and freely express our opinion without hindrance by public authorities and regardless of frontiers. We are doing nothing illegal by doing just that.
So, I’m going to Brussels. Who’s with me? And if you are with me, then spread the word.
And if you want to read the whole charter of your rights as an individual in the EU;
