The Solidarity Pledge

by Quinn

Via The Sharpener


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.
