Ivica Dačić, Prime Minister of Serbia: Remove the ban on Belgrade Pride Marches and Ensure the Right to Assemble

    1. Petition by

      Hornet Foundation

Serbia banned the Belgrade Pride March 2012 this October. This ban has denied the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people to freedom of expression and freedom of assembly. This is a dangerous precedent that is a step backwards for democracy and human rights in the region. It represents a wave of discrimination facing minorities in the region. Serbia as it desires to be a member of the European Union, must fully live up to its obligations in international law, not only allowing freedom to assemble but to also ensure the protection of all citizens from hate and discrimination in their daily lives.

As a head of state, you have a responsiblity to ensure these rights and the safety of all people.  The world clearly pays attention to the role and actions of Serbian presidents and the responsiblity of governments to their people.

      I come from Bulgaria and things are not very different here. Those politicians need to understand once and for that they are there because we chose them and they need to respectus. After all we are the people of these lands and we deserve our civil and human rights such as freedom of expression. Serbians cannot want to be part of the EU and at the same time deny such fondamentalities that make us reveil what we are, think and do especially when we're not hurting anyone at all. Human nature, as well as sexuality, has many forms and ways and if we don't even have the right to show it then, what's left to do?! Please mr Prime Minister, let us be who we already are since the day man started walking on Earth...free explorers of nature.
