Reprinted from an article by Rebellion (Danish language site.)
The court case against Rebellion (Denmark) for support to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) is now approaching. The demand is imprisonment. The court case takes place at Copenhagen City 6. Court, December 3 and December 7, 2009 and January 8, January 15, 2010. The judgement will be announced on February 8, 2010.
The aim of Rebellion (Denmark), formed in 2004, is to challenge ‘terrorist legislation’, both in Denmark and internationally.
Terrorist legislation seeks to undermine progressive organisations, resistance movements, trade unions and solidarity movements throughout the world.
We appeal for support from all to:
- Defend the right of peoples to resist illegitimate government and foreign occupation!
- Defend the right of peoples to take up arms against oppression where all other means have been exhausted!
Rebellion (Denmark) is accused of the transferral of substantial funds to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).
The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) has for decades been engaged in the struggle of the Palestinian people, in a legitimate conflict with occupation forces. We support the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) in its struggle for a secular and democratic state for all. It can in no way be defined as a ‘terrorist organisation’.
In Denmark, there is an increasing challenge to ‘terrorist legislation’, a growing defiance that Rebellion (Denmark) has striven to create and is itself a part of.
Through present terrorist legislation, states have attempted to curb the freedom of expression and the political rights of their citizens. The right to extend moral and material support to resistance and liberation movements throughout the world is threatened.
Rebellion (Denmark) appeals to all movements for democracy and international solidarity to join us in challenging national and supranational terrorist legislation and the so-called ‘global war on terror’.
