Breaches of EU law and of the rights of LGBTIQ citizens in Hungary as a result of the adopted legal changes in the Hungarian Parliament (B9-0412/2021, B9-0413/2021)

08-07-2021

On 15 June 2021, the Hungarian Parliament voted in favour of amendments proposed by Fidesz MPs that severely restrict freedom of speech and children’s rights. The Law prohibits the ‘portrayal and promotion of gender identity different from sex assigned at birth, the change of sex and homosexuality’ in schools, in television programmes and in publicly available advertisements on any platforms for persons aged under 18, even for educational purposes; the Law disqualifies such content from being considered as a public service announcement or social responsibility advertisement even if intended for adults; the Law introduces amendments to the Child Protection Act, the Family Protection Act, the Act on Business Advertising Activity, the Media Act and the Public Education Act.
I consider this Law to be in breach of EU law and of the rights of LGBTIQ citizens in Hungary, in particular the freedom to provide services and freedom of movement of goods as set out in the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, the Audiovisual Media Services Directive and E-commerce Directive in conjunction with the Charter of Fundamental Rights. Therefore I voted in favour of the resolution ‘Breaches of EU law and of the rights of LGBTIQ citizens in Hungary as a result of the legal changes adopted in the Hungarian Parliament’.

Ich begrüße, dass das Europäische Parlament zugestimmt hat, den Solidaritätsfonds der Europäischen Union im Zuge der aktuellen COVID-19-Krise auch für medizinische Notfälle zu öffnen und Vorschusszahlungen bis zu 100 Millionen Euro zu ermöglichen. Dies ermöglicht schnelle und gezielte Hilfe in der aktuellen Krise und ist ein wichtiger Ausdruck europäischer Solidarität.
Zusammen mit der Umsetzung der Corona Response Investment Initiative hat das Europäische Parlament damit ein starkes Signal gesendet, dass die EU alles unternehmen wird, um die COVID-19-Krise zu überwinden und europäische BürgerInnen zu unterstützen.
Die Entwicklungen der letzten Wochen haben eindrücklich gezeigt, dass europäische Solidarität und Kooperation die einzige Möglichkeit ist, der COVID-19-Krise erfolgreich zu begegnen. Zu versuchen, diese Pandemie als 27 regionale Krisen zu behandeln und sich auf nationale Maßnahmen zu beschränken, ist hingegen eindeutig der falsche Weg.

Importance of European remembrance for the future of Europe (RC-B9-0097/2019, B9-0097/2019, B9-0098/2019, B9-0099/2019, B9-0100/2019) DE

Ich enthalte mich zu dieser Entschließung, nicht weil mir die europäische Erinnerungskultur gleichgültig ist. Ich enthalte mich, weil mir die europäische Geschichte und die politische Verantwortung, die aus ihr erwächst, so am Herzen liegen.
Ja, wir müssen in Bildungsarbeit investieren, um die Erinnerung an den Holocaust und die Opfer des Stalinismus am Leben zu halten. Aber: Die Gleichsetzung von Nationalsozialismus, Kommunismus und Stalinismus im Entschließungstext ist unzulässig. Wir werden unserer historischen Verantwortung nur gerecht, wenn wir uns differenziert und sachgerecht mit unserer Vergangenheit befassen.
