From my article in The Sunday Times today:
“It is our duty to defy the illegal acts of authoritarian government. We cannot allow anyone to shut down the agora for the sake of their own vanity, and to protect the illusion of their unassailability.
At 7pm tonight, come to Great Siege Square, step into the agora, illegally barred for days by a regime in panic. If democracy still lives in our hearts, our hands and feet, our own clamouring voices must fight to defend it.”
