One year ago a near-total ban on #abortion came into force in #Poland, sparking mass protests. We call on the Polish government to cease attacks on women’s rights and women human rights defenders and moves to undermine the #RuleOfLaw. #LegalAbortion #NoCompromise

Almost one year after a near-total ban on #abortion came into force in #Poland, Human Rights Defenders face constant persecution by the state, police, prosecutors and far-right actors. The EU needs to #DefendTheDefenders who stand up for EU values. #LegalAbortion #NoCompromise

🇭🇺#Hungary's Parliament passed a proposal by the #Orban government to implement a near-irremovability of the general #prosecutor. Critics say the aim of cementing current Prosecutor General Péter Polt is to shield top brass from #corruption inquiries.
telex.hu: Hungarian government wants to amend laws that the removal of the current Prosecutor General Péter Polt would require 2/3 majority instead of simple majority at parliament. Opposition accuses mr Polt of blocking investigations against government circles.

It is unacceptable that EU money ends up financing governments that taunt the very basic democratic principles the EU committed to uphold for its people. /END
