"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Germany Calling

"The long-awaited music video "Scared of Lisbon" of the the band "die Bandbreite" has been published. A great, moving, and courageous eurosceptical song. It will reach the hearts of many people. For the protection of peace, human rights, democracy, and public services. The law suit of a German human rights activist (file number 2 BvR 1958/08), which has been, besides Dr. Gauweiler's complaint, one of the main reasons for the first Lisbon judgement, has been one of the main inspirations of the song. And many eurosceptical people have sent pictures to contribute to the video.

Within four days, nearly 29.000 people have watched it.This is the start for the critical democratical mass. A strong support for the Irish "No" campaign on the Lisbon Treaty. Please inform all people, for whom this song can be important.

Please put a link to the song.  It has already encouraged many people to read the Lisbon Treaty - within four days. To enjoy "Scared of Lisbon" offline, you can also buy the CD. For more information on the band, please look at www.diebandbreite.de

Tip: I watched it with the volume muted and found it helped - at least their hearts are in the right place.

  1. Aye, Scunnert? Aye you'll spread it around or 'Aye' it's abysmal music? I have to admit I'd be more heartened to hear it in Irish with a bit of the bodhran.
