πŸ“’ We stand with aditus and echo their call for urgent action! πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ή In March 2023, the Prime Minister said, β€œThe enhancement of our equality laws needs to and will be put back on the national agenda,” but we have heard nothing since. The two relevant bills, stalled since 2020, must be revived to dramatically improve human rights protections in Malta. βš–οΈAs well as the creation of an independent Human Rights and Equality Commission, the legislation would have tackled a wider range of unfair discrimination than at present, including aspects of religious education, and in healthcare and the provision of goods and services. All victims of human rights violations in Malta, nationals or not, including migrants, deserve more than the current patchwork regime. The courts are expensive and slow, and the NCPE lacks sufficient legal powers and remedies. We need a comprehensive human rights regime now! 🚨We agree with Aditus that specialized attention to human rights and unfair discrimination should ideally remain distinct from public service accountability, as a concern far wider than the duties of public administration. Let's ensure justice and equality for all! πŸ’ͺ timesofmalta.com/article/ombudsman-offers-human-rights-czar.1092676#HumanRights #EqualityNow #RevampTheBill #Malta #HumanistsMalta ... See MoreSee Less

Humanists Malta
Though National Day Against Homophobia was on May 17, our commitment to equality and respect continues every day. There can be no justification for treating non-Maltese nationals differently based on their same-sex relationships or gender identity. LGBTIQ migrants and non-Maltese nationals still face significant legal and social discrimination in Malta. Despite progress in some areas, many are left vulnerable due to gaps in protections and biased practices. It's crucial to address these issues to ensure equality and dignity for all. πŸ³β€πŸŒˆβ€πŸŒ TOM Link: timesofmalta.com/article/lgbtiq-migrants-nonmaltese-still-face-discrimination-law.1092695 #Respect #equality #NoToDiscrimination #humanistsmalta #supporthumanism #support #GlobalImpact #collaboration #humanism #CommunityEngagement #localimpact ...
