Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, May 24, 2019 – The March for Life tramples over women’s rights with support from state and church, and its taking place on electioneering ban day favourises all extreme right wing parties, the European election candidates of the coalition comprising the We Can! platform and the New Left and ORaH parties said on Friday, calling on voters to march to polling stations on Sunday to defeat fundamentalism.

Speaking at a press conference in front of a banner saying “March to the polling stations, defeat fundamentalism!”, they called on voters to be on “the right side of history” in the European Parliament elections on Sunday.

New Left candidate Rada Borić said “tomorrow again there will be a march against the lives of our sisters, daughters and mothers,” and that it was clear that the March for Life tramples over women.

“The so-called March for Life is supported not only by the church but the state too. We are here because we know that tomorrow a concert will be given here by a person who doesn’t keep his fascist iconography and fascist views secret, and we know that his performances are banned in Europe,” Borić said about a concert which the singer Marko Perković Thompson will hold in St. Mark’s Square on Saturday as part of the March for Life.

Responding to a question from the press, Borić said the support of the state and the church to the march was obvious. “The president will receive the marchers today,” she said, adding that President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović did not receive those who had been for the ratification of the Istanbul Convention, although the ratification had been in the government’s programme.
