ZAGREB, June 27, 2020 – Katarina Peovic, who heads the slate of the political platform We Can! in Constituency No. 8, said in Rijeka on Saturday that the Walk for Life held in that city today was a walk against reproductive rights, women’s equality and against solidarity and social justice.
Peovic made the statement at a news conference held before the start of the Walk for Life in Rijeka.
“All walks in Croatia have been cancelled due to the epidemiological situation, yet the Walk for Life is being held in Rijeka. It seems they want to infect Rijeka, but they won’t succeed. The red Rijeka has always been a city of solidarity, equality, equity. It has always supported women’s rights, accessible and free abortion, equal pay for women and men, higher wages, and policies advocating workers’ and women’s rights,” Peovic said, among other things.
