Urging the Governor to act in maintaining the Integrity of British Gibraltar Territorial Waters - Defenders of Gibraltar
Petition Background (Preamble):
It is generally understood that this is mainly to do with the UKs wish to avoid any sort of political confrontation with a fellow EU member or NATO ally.
We, the Gibraltarian people, are fed up with the constant aggressive and belligerent behaviour of our neighbour and the constant appeasement and inaction by those required by our constitution to defend us and Gibraltars territorial and political integrity. This includes the complete lack of any political will to tackle the issues which constitute oppression by the Kingdom of Spain towards Gibraltar and its people.
We are British Citizens. If this happened in waters off the UK, the response would be different. This is where the Governors attitude is wrong. The waters around Gibraltar are British - if you do not enforce it as such over time we will lose it.
It is utterly disgraceful that the British establishment continues to allow this continued oppression of its subjects overseas and the challenge to its authority to remain unanswered.
