The ‘take-away’ from what Brian and myself did, in forcing the repeal of ss 132-138 SOCPA 2005 legislation in the UK in the EU, was prove that ordinary people can peacefully and responsibly maintain and protect free speech and by so doing, stop terrorism.
We did not have the option/luxury to practice ‘civil disobedience’ because the legislation to ban free speech, which politicians intended to roll out across the country, had to be repealed.
Our priority was to responsibly maintain and protect free speech as the best possible means to protect defenceless civilians from terrorism.
If only a small group of civilians could do what we really did very publicly do against all the odds, over so many years, then we conclusively proved everyone, including small and large groups of people do have the opportunity to peacefully contribute to building capacity for peace in so many ways.
Terrorism of any kind against defenceless civilians can never be justified under any circumstances.
It really is the public duty of everyone to responsibly participate in and contribute to peacefully making all our communities as welcoming and as safe as possible.
