The Solidarity Pledge

WE DEFY TERRORISM

We pledge to assemble in London in a public demonstration of respect to the victims of the July 7 atrocity, defiance of the murderers who carried it out
and solidarity with the people of London
.

This pledge was started by the Sharpener group blog, and is being hosted on Pledgebank.

To sign it, go here.

I won’t be signing the pledge, but only because there are all manner of practical reasons why I may be unable to get to London on any given day. I don’t want to make a promise that I feel there is a good chance I won’t be able to keep. However, suffice it to say that whenever the demonstration is held I will be either

  • there in London
  • stuck at work
  • showing my solidarity at Exchange Square, Manchester (which was constructed out of the debris of the 1996 IRA bomb)

If I cannot make it to London, then I will be there in spirit, and I hope the pledge is as successful as it deserves to be.
