When humans talk about us, we vermin are not easily offended. Then we see what humans are capable of doing to their own species. Even cats don’t behave like that. And I hate them. Zara our Shetland correspondent just sent us this .
Je Suis Charlie
I am Charlie , so are you if you believe in liberty and freedom of speech and the right to life we are all Charlie.
The acts of Terror and Murder at the heart of the City most of us see as the simply of liberty is quite simply shocking and yet some of us might be thinking its a long way from Orkney what can any of us do.
In 1320 Scotland made a declaration “It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom – for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself”.
I know repeat this not as part of the on going Scottish constitutional debate but as reminder that this idea expressed later in American & France.
Liberty , Equality , Fraternity
we must united say with one voice , we support Charlie Hebdo , we will defend our right to fee speech our very right to satirise public figures be they political or theological.
and to these who would deny us i have only one answer.
Give me liberty, or give me death – Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité, ou la Mort!
