Who is afraid of the rule of law? | Brussels, 11 October 2019


Friday 11th of October 
5.30 pm - 7pm 
c/o ALDE Party rue d'Idalie 11, in Brussels

Marco Cappato, founder of Science for Democracy and Eumans, and co-promoter of the ECI for the respect of the rule of law in the European Union 
Federica Sabbati, vice president European Movement and coordinator of the Brussels branch of +Europa party 
A member of the Hungarian party, Momentum 

The “Rule of Law”: a bit of an abstract term, perhaps. However, it guarantees very concrete freedoms, those that we Europeans are very much used to. The freedom of expression, ie to criticize publicly your government; the freedom to have equal rights, regardless of whether you are a man or a woman; the separation of powers, ensuring the independence of the Judiciary from the Executive power.

The Rule of Law is a powerful guarantor of our freedoms, but it is also like a fragile child needing constant attention. Today, even in our democratic Europe it is threatened by illiberal governments, such as the current Hungarian one.

This is why several pro-European organisations have proposed a new European Citizens Initiative (ECI) in support of the Rule of Law in Europe, to create safeguard measures against its violations anywhere in the EU, and thus guarantee all of us our freedoms. https://formyrights.eu

The Italian +Europa party (Brussels branch) and the promoters of the ECI (Science for Democracy, Eumans and Movimento Europeo) invite you to a debate with Marco Cappato, former MEP and Italian human rights campaigner and a representative of the Hungarian opposition party Momentum, like +Europa a member of the ALDE Party.

We look forward to meeting you on Friday 11 October between 17:30hrs-19:00hrs at the ALDE Party rue d'Idalie 11, in Brussels.
