1.7.2014, ENAR – Joint statement for a strong Intergroup on anti-racism in the European Parliament

As the first plenary session of the new European Parliament takes place this week, ENAR and 95 European and national civil society organisations issue a joint statement calling on MEPs and political groups to establish a strong intergroup on anti-racism in the European Parliament.

The progression of far-right parties or parties propagating xenophobic and racist ideas – with 80 MEPs from these parties – threatens the core European values of human rights and equality.

It is therefore essential to ensure that the European Parliament’s commitment to tackle racial discrimination and racist violence is high on the agenda, and that MEPs establish a strong intergroup on anti-racism in the European Parliament to advance a comprehensive anti-racist agenda and to jointly react to manifestations of racism and hate.
