25/04/2022 | 18:42:15 In May 2021, almost one year ago, Spain approved a law on the protection of children and adolescents vis-à-vis violence. We did this, bearing in mind the rights of children, the rights of adolescents, they should not be the subject of any type of violence. This new law was necessary because the cases of violence against children – young girls, young boys –  were unfortunately covered by a layer of silence. We have to remove that silence. We have to prevent violence. If we are to prevent... 29/09/2021 | 17:59:55 "We need a green planet, because this is red alert". Those were the words of the UN Secretary General at the Climate Summit. Young people from across the world are mobilizing for climate justice and today we heard that here.

Individuals which are forced into prostitution, forced labour, organ trafficking as well. This goes hand in hand with violence and threats. The protection of these victims ought... 29/01/2020 | 10:50:27 Thank you, Mr President. Freedom of thought, of belief, and of religion is a universal human right which is consecrated in article 18 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and in article 9 of the European Convention on Human Rights. This freedom of belief needs to be respected in work places. In Spain, article 14 of the Spanish Constitution establishes that Spanish people are equal before the law without any form of discrimination for reasons of birth, race, sex, religion, opinion, or...
