Elisabeth intervenes on the behalf of free speech for the EDL at OSCE meeting in Vienna


First published at the Gates of Vienna:

Below is a video of the intervention made by Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff during Session 2 of the annual Supplementary Human Dimension Meeting of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) in Vienna yesterday (November 9, 2012).

The session’s topic was “Freedom of Association” Elisabeth spoke on behalf ofBürgerbewegung Pax Europa (BPE); see yesterday’s post for the full text of BPE’s intervention.

Elisabeth focused in particular on the plight of the English Defence League, which is effectively suppressed by the British authorities through being denied the right to assemble freely and peaceably. By allowing violent leftists to harass the EDL with impunity, while at the same time intimidating, inconveniencing, and arresting members of the EDL, the police are denying the group its rights under European and UN human rights conventions.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for uploading this video:
