1. POLAND: STOPPRESS
Please sign the petition by PolishWomen’s Strike opposing the presence of Polish religious extremists at the ICPD25Summit in Nairobi
We, Polish women, who have been fighting in theblack protestsin150 cities in Poland against the religious fundamentalist’s total ban onabortion in 2016 and 2018, urge you not to trust those who approach you with “Christianvalues” or “family rights”.
We want you to know that the foundation Ordo Iuris, which claims torepresent Poland at the Nairobi ICPD25 summit, is not representing us. This isa foundation that acts against our rights, which tried to introduce a penalty ofup to3 years for abortioninPoland, and is now trying to punish with up to5 years in prison for sexual educationunder the pretext of“stopping paedophilia”.
We, the Polish women, who had to go into the streets to defend ourrights, want you to know thatOrdoIuris is persecuting our activists by engaging in legal harassment and ourchildren suffer because of their anti-LGBT hate actions.This is asmall anti-human rights group of wealthy lawyers who have received advisorystatus at the UN, while, we, average Polish women, have no voice to speak toyou.
We want you to hear us! Sign here today, please – ICPD+25 starts today
