Desde aquí, todo el apoyo y solidaridad. Nos unimos a su reclamo. Cualquier cosa distinta que mantenga este trato desigual actual es impermisible. Cada día, cada minuto que pasa es un daño irreparable e insostenible hacia esta familia y hacia cada una de sus componentes. También es irreparable para todas y todos en el país, pues aspiramos a una vivir en una mejor sociedad no en una de marcadas injusticias y exclusiones como esta. Quienes gobiernan tienen la obligación urgente de remediarlo (como lo debió haber remediado el Tribunal Supremo) y nosotras y nosotros tenemos la responsabilidad de exigirlo.
Aprueba el Senado un "proyecto histórico". Bravo y de acuerdo con los principios correctos, los de la igualdad. Esta sí es una verdad. Y ya tocaba.
"The laws of a republic are based on equality and love of equality is the source from which the actions of citizens spring. Monarchical laws are based on distinctions so that love of distinctions inspire the public actions of the citizenry....Equality in so far as it is a political experience as distinguished from equality before God- ... has always meant that, regardless of existing differences, everyone is of equal value because each one received by nature and equal amount of strength.
The fundamental experience upon which republican laws are founded and from which the action of citizens spring is the experience of living together with, and being members of, a group of equally powerful men. Laws in a republic therefore, are not laws of distinctions but laws of restrictions; they are designed to restrict the strength of each citizen so that room may be left for the strength of his fellow citizen. The common ground of republican law and action within it is the insight that human strength is not primarily limited by some superior power --God or nature-- but by the power of equals, and the joy that springs from it. Virtue as love of equality springs from this experience of equality of power that alone guards men against the dread of loneliness".
Arendt en 'The Great Tradition: Law and Power' (explica los principios fundamentales en Montesquieu).

2013 Annual Law Lecture:
IS THERE A RIGHT TO DISOBEDIENCE AND RESISTANCE?
Professor Costas Douzinas, Birkbeck, University of London
'The ‘new world order’ announced in 1989 was the shortest in history coming to an abrupt end in 2008. From the Arab spring, to the indignados and Occupy, protests and uprisings have erupted all over the world. History, recently declared finished, has been reborn as we move into an age of resistance and change. New forms of resistance appear regularly. Their timing is unpredictable, their legal position problematic but their occurrence certain.
The lecture examines the (legal) right to resistance. Permanent revolution is the condition in modern science and art. In law, the right has been written off but cannot be wished away. it has turned into a ghostly norm, a void at the core of law that keeps it from ossifying. Despite the reservations of philosophers and lawyers, resistance has become the modern expression of free action when the order of the world decays. The ‘right to resistance’ remains the highest form of political freedom and moral responsibility. As right and as event, resistance acts like a ghost which supports all other rights. Despite its disavowal, resistance returns from time to time like the repressed.'
Friday 24 May, 6 - 8pm.
Venue: Room B33 Malet St Building, Birkbeck, University of London
