Today, more than 200 national and international NGOs, including Portuguese Human Rights League – Civitas, wrote a letter addressed to the Portuguese Presidency of the EU, requesting to take action on the severe violations committed by Poland in what concern Rule of Law and the EU Treaty.

We are assisting to the fall of the Polish judicial system independence, constant attacks to the Women rights and also to the Right of Manifestation and Assembly.

EU values are being destroyed and Portugal is in a key-position to leave a landmark in the Union construction and reinforce the respect for the Rule of Law, the guarantee of fight against injustice and civilizational set back.
