The case of Nicolas Bernard-Buss, so shockingly imprisoned for protesting against the redefinition of marriage in France, comes up today Tuesday 9th July, for appeal and review by a court.
Nicolas has been in prison for 16 days at Fleury-Mérogis in France, and there has been an outcry all over France and the whole of Europe against this injustice.
Normality is criminalized. Nature is now considered deviant and those who uphold it are crushed and silenced by a mad law. This is intolerable. It is Orwellian. In France, as in England, the government is setting out to change the meaning of the words "marriage", "husband" and "wife" just to suit a tiny minority of stubborn freaks who are not content to call their relationship a civil partnership. Homosexuals are only 2% of society and most of them do NOT want to get married. The law completely undermines marriage as a union between man and woman that is the foundation of the family - it also attacks the rights of children.
All over France there have been daily demonstrations of protest, many of them by the Veilleurs Debout - people who just stand still, unmoving, for hours in a public place, witnessing for what they believe and reminding the authorities of their support for Nicolas, impossible to ignore and increasingly irritating to the police. Some of these silent watchers are positioned in the Place de Vendome and others in front of the Court of Appeal in Paris where the case of Nicolas is to be heard. Many more are demonstrating and testifying for good moral values elsewhere all over France.
There is going to be a big rally for La Manif Pour Tous in Paris on 14th of July (next Sunday). Come if you can, wear your illegal T-shirt or sweat-shirt and stand up for family values. We will be meeting at the Invalides in the centre of the Paris and fellow-campaigners from all over Europe are welcome to join us.
Two French people dressed as a bride and groom circuited the Place de Vendome in the centre of Paris in support of Nicolas, L:a Manif Pour Tous, and Real Marriage.
