Next level of escalation in a peaceful manner.
In November we handed our Governor a petition on behalf of the people of Gibraltar. We did this to highlight the discontent and concern at the lack of action from the Foreign Commonwealth Office and our UK government! We are not happy about the continuous lack of action by the Royal Navy in protecting our waters!
We have been very patient and have tried to complain in so many ways like the collecting of the 10,000 signatures for the petition in our call for more action! We have not seen any change since we handed the petition and we believe we are being shunned as a people who deserve the same respect as any other British Citizen who is suffering at the hands of a bigger and more powerful country than our little Gibraltar!
But one thing UK and Spain have underestimated is our passion and drive to be respected and defended! We have rights we have a voice and we have a choice. We have spoken out at the lack of acceptable protection in our own British Gibraltar Territorial Waters! We demand that UK, FCO and the Royal Navy do their DUTY to protect the integrity of our waters
We stand up and say No more sleeping - No more Slumber - Wake up Britain and Roar like thunder!
No other country would tolerate the daily incursions in our waters and the blatant disregard for our laws!
The Spanish Guardia Civil have no rights to enter our waters and least of all trying to exercise jurisdiction in them. Remember the Guardia Civils are para military and their incursions are a provocation not only to UK but more to us the people of Gibraltar.
Let us reiterate the issue is NOT a FISHING issue!
The problem is THE SOVEREIGNTY OF OUR BRITISH GIBRALTAR TERRITORIAL WATERS!
So the time has come for us to raise our discontent to another level. A peaceful demonstration outside our Governor's residence as a 48 hour Vigil!
We the committee of the Defenders of Gibraltar want to stand up in getting our voices heard and saying enough is enough, We invite everyone to stand with us during this Vigil.
Together we will get our voices heard! We need to stand up to the bully that Spain is and we need to stand up to UK about the lack of protection and too much appeasement to Spain at our expense!
I am sure if we had petrol or oil - action would have already been taken!
Words mean nothing without action! The time has come that UK stand up to the bully that Spain is!
Our event is on facebook - https://www.facebook.com/events/478806658834254/
Defenders of Gibraltar will be holding a 48 hour Vigil to protest about the lack of action by FCO in protecting British Gibraltar Territorial Waters!
We invite all the public who believe that we need more action to come and stand in solidarity with us and support the 48 hours Vigil.
"Friday 8th February at 18.00 - Sunday 10th February 18.00"
The aim is to apply more pressure in showing our discontent of the current situation we are facing DAILY in our waters.
This is not about FISHING this is about the sovereignty of our waters!
This Vigil is another level of peaceful escalation following the lack of response received after the petition of 10,000 signatures was collected and handed over to the FCO by our Governor!
What do we expect to achieve or what do we want?
We want the FCO to take our complaints seriously and demand that they do their DUTY and not only protect but secure our BGTW!
The Royal Navy MUST carry out their DUTY as per our constitutional requirements!
The Royal Gibraltar Police must also be called to enforce the laws at seas!
IT IS MORE THAN APPARENT THAT THE CURRENT STRATEGY EMPLOYED BY THE ROYAL NAVY AND FCO IS NOT WORKING AND THEY ARE FAILING THE PEOPLE OF GIBRALTAR!THAT THE CURRENT STRATEGY EMPLOYED BY THE ROYAL NAVY AND FCO IS NOT WORKING AND THEY ARE FAILING THE PEOPLE OF GIBRALTAR!
