Ending Gag Lawsuits in Europe Protecting Democracy and Fundamental Rights

The problem: gag lawsuits against public interest defenders

The EU must end gag lawsuits used to silence individuals and organisations that hold those in positions of power to account. Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation (SLAPP) are lawsuits brought forward by powerful actors (e.g. companies, public officials in their private capacity, high profile persons) to harass and silence those speaking out in the public interest. Typical victims are those with a watchdog role, for instance: journalists, activists, informal associations, academics, trade unions, media organisations and civil society organisations.

Plus de 50 ONGs demandent la transparence à la présidence allemande de l’UE

mardi 23 juin 2020

Plus de 50 ONGs, dont Sciences Citoyennes, ont signé cet appel demandant à la présidence allemande, démarrant le 1er juillet 2020, de prioriser l’intérêt général dans les prises de décisions au niveau européen, des réformes législatives sur la transparence des lobbys au sein du Conseil, une transparence complète des lobbys allemands et de nouveaux droits pour les citoyens de s’exprimer sur les décisions des gouvernements concernant les affaires européennes. La déclaration se trouve ici, et résulte de la publication du nouveau rapport de Corporate Europe Observatory et LobbyControl – Tainted love: corporate lobbying and the upcoming German EU Presidency (retrouvez la synthèse du rapport, et le rapport complet). 

We, civil society organisations from Germany and across Europe, demand a German EU Council Presidency that sets new standards in transparency and accountability, and which tackles the challenges ahead in the public interest.

The EU Presidency must prioritise three urgent challenges: handling the coronavirus pandemic and its consequences, tackling inequality, and fighting the climate crisis. These need to be addressed together on a strong foundation of democracy, anti-racism, human rights, social rights, and international solidarity. Instead of bailing out climate polluters and tax-dodgers, and giving in to ‘coronawash’ lobbying for weaker regulations, we need a new vision based on progressive alternatives that will roll back inequality. The German Presidency must use this moment to forgo corporate interests and to instead make serving the public interest the clear priority.
