Democracy is strengthened by protest and challenge – NewStart

‘putting down’ of those with whom they disagree.

Community groups and citizens who protest against an unwanted planning application or a cut to a public service are quite legitimately exercising their democratic rights. Indeed, by their actions and their collective voice, they are strengthening democracy itself.

Thanks. God bless.
