Supporting the voice of antiracism in Europe – the honourable ENAR network. DARE signed the support letter against the diffamation of antiracist work by François-Xavier Bellamy (European People’s Party) as “radical”. We and 57 other organisations request to denounce MEPs for using Parliamentary premises to defame and slander civil society organisations. As a concrete and hopefully efficient measure the open letter asks the EP to participate in Anti-Racism and Diversity Week.

Democracy and Human Rights Education in Europe (DARE network) strongly condemns the current political regime in Russia’s attack on Ukraine. This unprovoked use of military force against the country, the people and the elected government of Ukraine, a sovereign European state, shakes the foundations of peace and democratic coexistence in Europe and and directly opposes our fundamental convictions of human rights and the democratic processes on which Europe is built (e.g., Helsinki Final Act, OSCE process, European Convention on Human Rights). The attack violates international law, and is against the Russian constitution, art. 10, prohibition of propaganda of war and of Russia’s criminal code, art. 353, initiation of war.Continue reading “DARE stands in solidarity with Ukraine”
