Minister de Satter defends EuroPride in front of the Serbian Prime Minister | Abroad

Deputy Prime Minister Petra de Suter (Green) asked Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic to engage in dialogue with EuroPride organizers in the capital, Belgrade, and find solutions to allow the event. “Deleting the march doesn’t necessarily remove tensions, but it can also create one,” says de Sutter.

Usually, EuroPride takes to the streets of Belgrade on Saturdays, but the government will not allow the original route. A human rights conference will also be held on the sidelines of the event. De Sutter was asked to open this conference, but Prime Minister Brnabic also called for a meeting.

“It is important that the pride march continues,” the deputy prime minister said. To be clear: security risks must be taken seriously, but care must be taken not to follow the agenda of groups targeting LGBT rights. In this sense, I wanted to assure the Prime Minister that canceling the rally does not necessarily remove tensions, it can also create them.”

According to De Sutter, EuroPride, like the waving rainbow flag, are symbols of human rights. “They show that LGBT people exist and are part of every community. The tensions surrounding this conference make clear: Human rights must be preserved among people,” the minister asserts. If we ignore human rights, they will vanish. I see human rights as the fire that must continue to blow.”
