Today, a protest was held in front of the headquarters of the Emilia-Romagna Region in Bologna so that the regional law against homophobia may be brought into the parliament and approved.
I’m not really what you call an activist, but I am the daughter of a Revolution that changed the course of EUROPE 30 years ago.
I therefore want to support loudly, the right to #freedom, #inclusion, #respect for ALL.
The right to love who and how we like. The right of everyone to be able to form a family recognized by the state and the law.
I was impressed to meet and talk with women who, 40 years ago (1968), are once again taking to the streets to demonstrate basically for the same rights as before. It seems almost a counter-sense, but this is how it is today.
Because we are not just talking about the rights of the LGBTI community but also those of women, because the Italian parliament is voting for a law that intends to reform family law (and not in a good way).
“The bill was much criticized by feminist movements, social workers, anti-violence center activists and organizations dealing with violence against women, but also by associations for the protection of minors.”
I’m wondering if the world isn’t taking a wrong turn when it comes to human rights. It seems that since 1948, what is still binding as part of international law, is today only demagogy (I’m talking about Italy here).
