No religion or culture can justify men's violence against women and girls.

These human rights violations still happen across Europe and kill over 600 women yearly.

Unacceptable!

Eradicating gender-based violence from its roots must be the EU's goal.

"From the very beginning of the Farm to Fork Strategy, the @EPPGroup has asked for a thorough impact assessment of the proposal," says @Franc_Bogovic MEP.

🤚Put an end to rape!
🤚Stop sexual violence!

Blatant contempt for women´s human rights is happening in Russia's war in Ukraine.

We stand firm against all breaches of human rights in conflict zones.

Perpetrators must be held accountable in court.

🚨With a war hitting Europe, we cannot introduce new laws that would put our food production at risk.

‼️We have millions of people to feed.

The priority must be 👉 ensuring our food security.

MEP @angelikawinzig at the :

➡️ It is really sad that in the 21st century we still have to discuss the issue of violence against women.
➡️This is certainly a criminal offence.
➡️The task now is to close the legal loopholes in legal protection.

For the first time in history, state security controls a state in Europe. This had never happened before.
We are dealing with completely irrational people and an irrational structure.

RT @TomislavSokol: We achieved a provisional political agreement on that will increase the level of consumer protection and prevent their over-indebtedness. However, @EPPGroup has often been alone in its efforts to keep payment methods from being more expensive and bureaucratic for consumers!

The new regulation on pesticide reduction needs a deeper impact assessment considering the context of war.

“The impact assessment did not properly take into account what effects the regulation could have on food security," says @HerbertDorfmann MEP.

Destruction of critical infrastructure.

Deliberate bombing of housing, residential areas, electricity and water supplies.
