The Methods of a Totalitarian Society

OSCE logo

Below is a video of the statement made by Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff during Session 1 of the annual Supplementary Human Dimension Meeting of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) in Vienna yesterday (November 8, 2012).

The session’s topic was “Freedom of Association: obstacles to the full realization of this right and ways to overcome them.” Elisabeth spoke on behalf of Bürgerbewegung Pax Europa (BPE); see yesterday’s post for the full text of BPE’s statement.

She raised the issue of intimidation against proprietors of restaurants willing to host events; in particular, one that was organized by DIE FREIHEIT in Munich. The owner of the proposed venue had been threatened repeatedly by phone, and was forced to cancel the event when she was told by Munich authorities that her concession might be revoked by the city if she did not cancel the event.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for uploading this video:

thank you very much Ms.Sabadisch-Wolff for mentioning this terribly urgent issue, hoping that it will be heard across the world.

It shouldn´t be part of democracy, that everyone defames people as "Nazi" as they just stand up for democratic rights.

These people are no Nazis at all.

This way, freedom of speech is very much cut down to 0, which is equal to a totalitarian state. Stop fascism please.
