Peaceful Demo

(Apologies if this has been posted before. Courtesy of UAE Alias)

Have you been feeling sick of what's going on lately in Palestine, Iraq and now Lebanon? Do you feel like shouting? saying no? having a say on what is happening in Lebanon?
Yes! We are going to protest in the Cornish of AbuDahbi on THU, 27 of JUL, 2006 after AL Asr Prayer.
Make sure to bring your own signs, flags, posters, brochures, etc...
Make sure to let as many of your friends aware of this event, the more the better.
هل سئمت مما يحدث مؤخراً في العراق وفلسطين والآن لبنان؟ هل تريد أن تصرخ؟ أن تقول لا، أن يكون لك كلمة وصوت مسموع عن ما يحدث في لبنان؟
نعم ! سنتظاهر في كورنيش أبوظبي، يوم الخميس الموافق ال 27 من يوليو 2006 بعد صلاة العصر.
تأكد من إحضار أي من الأعلام أو اللافتات التي قد تود استخدامها، ومن إعلام أكبر عدد من معارفك اللذين قد يودون الاشتراك في المظاهرة.

Hi Buj. Interesting idea. Does one need a permit from the city to stage such an event. If so, has such a permit been obtained?

BD said...

^^^Also, the Cornish in AD is a long stretch with grounds lining either side of the road. Where and what time will this thing be and start? Not everyone will know when Al Asr is.

In the UAE you need to take the authorities permission to have a social gathering of any sort as far as I know.

Al Asr prayer is at 3:45 p.m.

Corniche. It's a French word. Cornish refers to people and things from the county of Cornwall in south west England.

bd: in response to your question.. of course u need police approval.. just like in any country b4 a demo.. but here in europe we call it "notification".. ie u tell them so they can get enough police.. but "approval" means that they can refuse u.

Heh! How soon before this demo starts asking awkward questions about the UAE government's stance on the issues at hand? And why they seem so at odds with the opinion of the general public? Can't have that now, can we?

Woke said...

Tim, you better not go for the approval ;-)

BD said...

So, did it happen or what?
