Subcomittee for Human Rights, European Parliament

The European society is no status quo, it is what we make of it. I refuse to live in a Europe Union where the worth of a human being is attached to her or his skin colour, ethnic group or religion. Therefore, together with my colleagues from the Greens/EFA, I stand and struggle for an EU rich in diversity, during the 20th European Action Week Against Racism as much as in my personal and political everyday life.

Mrs Barbara Lochbihler, Chair of the Subcomittee for Human Rights in the European Parliament
