Abstract

In our ancient, prosperous and democratic Europe, we find ourselves in the fortunate position of being able, as citizens individually or as a group, to practice ‘civil disobedience’ – be the reason concerns about the climate or about our self-determination – without this leading to overly dramatic, let alone life-threatening, consequences for the individuals involved. This is decidedly different elsewhere, in less democratic countries like for instance Russia, Saudi-Arabia, Iran, Turkey. The price we sometimes do have to pay – must be prepared to pay? – for our civil disobedience is, fortunately, decidedly lighter. But that doesn’t mean it cannot at times be a burden in our otherwise light existence. In this paper I want to illustrate this by means of my own civil disobedience and its consequences.
