Brussels, 9 June 2017
Today, one million of signatures
supporting the European citizens’ initiative Mum, Dad & Kids
are deposited to national authorities of the 28 Member States
Mum, Dad & Kids is glad to announce that today all the national coordinators of the European Citizens’ Initiative are deposing their citizen signatures to their national authorities as provided by the rules of European Commission.
As shown by the 1 million of signatures, a huge number of European citizens are in favour of the incorporation into the European legislation of this double definition of marriage and family: “Marriage means a legal union between one man and one woman” and “family is based on marriage and/or descent”.
These definitions correspond to the set of principles common to all the Member States of the European Union.
Their adoption would reinforce the European unity and would ensure the respectof article 9 of the Charter of fundamental rights of the European Union.
Mum, Dad & Kids warmly thanks the million of citizens who supported this European citizens’ initiative, all the volunteers and all the organisations that contributed to its success.
