Call for Solidarity actions with the accused COP15 activists

Auszug aus einem Aufruf des Climate Collective:

On the 18th of August there will be a solidarity demonstration in Copenhagen to mark the trial of the first two people accused of ‚organizing‘ the protests around the COP 15. We urge everyone to spend the day or the following days on demonstrations and statements of support and solidarity – demonstration and manifestations outside Danish embassies, press work and articles – all are welcome and appreciated.
In our view – the right to protest and everyone’s right to be heard, is an essential element in a democracy. We therefore call on everyone to show solidarity with the accused and make the criticism of the ongoing processes visible.
The coming trials is not just about the fact that innocent people might be convicted, but about everybody’s fundamental right to demonstrate, protest, take action and organize politically. It is important that we do not sign away these rights, but continue the fight. [mehr …] or
