Libertatea de exprimare
Daca te duci pe stadion cu un mesaj de genul: „Mitica la puscarie” si reusesti sa intri cu el, te trezesti cu o amenda pentru ca nu ai voie sa aduci ofense conducatorilor (federatiei si cluburilor). Asta in Romania.
In tari mai dezvoltate (si mai crizate decat asta a noastra) se dau compensatii in valoare de 240.000 dolari, pentru gestul de a interzice unui om purtarea in avion a unui tricou cu inscriptii in araba, traduse in engleza cu „We will not be silent”.
NEW YORK (AFP) – An airline passenger forced to cover his T-shirt because it displayed Arabic script has been awarded 240,000 dollars in compensation, campaigners said Monday.
Raed Jarrar received the pay out on Friday from two US Transportation Security Authority officials and from JetBlue Airways following the August 2006 incident at New York’s JFK Airport, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) announced.
„The outcome of this case is a victory for free speech and a blow to the discriminatory practice of racial profiling,” said Aden Fine, a lawyer with ACLU.
Jarrar, a US resident, was apprehended as he waited to board a JetBlue flight from New York to Oakland, California, and told to remove his shirt, which had written on it in Arabic: „We will not be silent.”
He was told other passengers felt uncomfortable because an Arabic-inscribed T-shirt in an airport was like „wearing a T-shirt at a bank stating, I am a robber,'” the ACLU said.
PS: stiati ca la un moment dat, tot la un meci de fotbal, a fost INTERZIS mesajul: „Basarabia pamant Romanesc!” pe motiv de instigare la violenta?
