Yes because in 2021 – recalls Amnesty International which instead organized an afternoon event at the Maxxi in Rome – “in at least 67 states regulations were promulgated that negatively affected freedom of expression, association and peaceful demonstration while in 85 states it was made excessive or unnecessary use of force to disperse protests”. These are just two of the many events that will be held today in Italy and around the world on the occasion of that World Human Rights Day established by the United Nations in 1950, to commemorate the proclamation by the General Assembly of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted on 10 December 1948 in Paris. A document that paved the way for many civilian conquests after the war onwards. And also as an ideal background to the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU, which with the Treaty of Lisbon has assumed the same legal value as the treaties.

Or the law approved yesterday in Portugal which decriminalizes euthanasia by establishing non-punishment if the decision is made by a “serious, free and lucid person in a situation of great suffering”. And also, on the other side of the ocean, the Respect for Marriage Act which is the bipartisan rule to block gay marriage for fear that the Supreme Court with a conservative majority could annul it: “A crucial step to ensure that all Americans have the right to marry who they love”, defined the president Joe Biden.

Defense of fundamental rights, on which in Italy, we fall behind. The sudden end of the legislature has in fact invalidated bills that have not been approved as lo “Law School” which had landed in the Chamber supported by Pd, M5S and part of Forza Italia and aimed to recognize Italian citizenship to young migrants born in Italy or arrived before the age of 12 who had attended at least 5 years of school in our country. And then the law on the end of life also requested by the Consulta which now the M5s and Pd have returned to present – with two distinct proposals – to the Chamber and the Senate. Without forgetting that DDL Zan which asked to tighten the penalties against homobitransphobic crimes, sunk in the Senate with the help of Italia Viva.
