“We are re-submitting the amendment for the institutional recognition of the term” feminicide “”, emphasizes the president of SYRIZA – Progressive Alliance and former Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, in a post on his personal Facebook page.
He calls on Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis “to acknowledge his mistake” and to reject the amendment a few days ago.
“A few days ago, ND rejected our amendment for the institutional recognition of the term” gynecology “with the evasion that it would set up a draft law committee for domestic violence.
Today we count the 14th victim of gynecology in a year. There should be no political controversy when we experience in a dramatic way, every day now, the effects of gender-based violence.
That is why we will resubmit our amendment. Disgust and anger are not enough. It is time for action, we are already late. And the recognition of genocide by the State must be only the beginning, for the suppression of patriarchy, sexism and all the root causes of gender-based violence.
“I expect Mr. Mitsotakis to acknowledge his mistake and stand up to the circumstances,” said the leader of the main opposition party.
