or på engelsk:
Love without borders!
Things have changed since December 2007. And actually since December 2009 when I had to apply to extend my temporary residency, they have changed quite a bit. And those changes are not for the better.
Yesterday more than 6000 people converged on the 3 biggest cities in Denmark-- Copenhagen, Århus, and Odense --to protest the new Danish Immigration Laws related to "Family Reunification". The event was organized, of all places, on FACEBOOK by a group called "Ægteskab uden grænser" (Marriage without borders) in order to tell the Danish government that Danes are unhappy with the new POINTS system that has been established to determine if the foreigner they have chosen to fall in love with and marry is WORTHY to come and live in Denmark.
If you have ever read George Orwell's Animal Farm, you can see how this system REEKS of the same type of thinking that was encouraged amongst the animals, but instead of "FOUR LEGS, GOOD; TWO LEGS, BAD", we are now saying "EDUCATED, EXPERIENCED & WESTERN, GOOD; UNEDUCATED, UNEXPERIENCED & EASTERN; BAD". In Orwell's Animal Farm it was the sheep who chanted these things on a regular basis, but I think it is quite evident from yesterday's gathering that many residents of Denmark are NOT going to allow themselves to just be sheep.......
I have a feeling this is not the last we will hear from this group.
