It's Time to Outlaw Unfair Discrimination Across the European Union!

Help make fair anti-discrimination laws in the European Union.

"We believe that equality, anti discrimination and human rights are the basis on which the EU was founded in the Rome Treaties. We are astounded that after 60 years millions of EU citizens still have no legal protection from daily discrimination of all kinds.

This website is promoting a Europe-wide petition for a new European Directive to outlaw discrimination. We need the directive to ban discrimination in access to goods and services on grounds of disability, age, sexual orientation and religion or belief - areas not currently covered in many EU member states (we already have Directives outlawing discrimination in Employment, Race and Gender). We aim to show support for an 'own initiative' report by UK MEP Liz Lynne currently going through the European Parliament which calls for a comprehensive new anti-discrimination directive as a top priority."
