25-S: We are many

Wednesday, November 7, 2012

We are a multitude. Some participated. Many others will do so in the future. Others can’t. But the more they harass citizens peacefully making their demands, the more we’ll be. The voice of the people is democracy. The voice of all the people. Hiding behind a parliamentary majority is contrary to genuine democracy. Laws imposed by force aren’t fair laws. They are legal but not legitimate.

The time for submission, fear and silence is over. Let’s talk. Let’s listen. Let’s reach thoughtfully-prepared agreements. Let’s make the great transition from force to words, the great turning point toward multilateralism and authentic democracy.

Many of us already support 25-S. And there will be many more.
