We are individual citizens who wish to live in peace in our countries, under the rule of law and in the spirit of the Magna Carta, respecting Constitutions which guarantee our inalienable human rights to life and liberty.
We cherish our most fundamental right to life – and demand that governments live up to their obligation to protect it by applying the rule of law equally to everyone, regardless of gender, race or any other consideration.
We recognize that in order to maintain our rights, we must first and foremost, defend our right to unfettered freedom of speech: without it, there are no peaceful means to defend our other fundamental human rights.
As such, we insist on our right to criticize governments, government policies and politicians.
As such, we insist on our right to criticize ideologies and philosophies and those who espouse or promote them.
As such, we insist on our right to criticize religious beliefs, religious figures and religious practices.
As such, we insist on our right to criticize cultures and cultural practices.
These are not simply our rights, these are the duties of every citizen.
