Polish debate on civil partnership: “It’s a historical moment. (…) Let’s not waste it”, says Biedroń

Yesterday Polish parliament, for the first time in history, discussed issues of civil partnerships/ civil unions. “It’s a historical moment. (…) Let’s not waste it”, said Robert Biedroń (Palikot Movement) who presented few projects which are saying about registering civil partnerships between people who do not want or cannot get married. The response that he received from some Polish opposition parties (Law and Justice and Solidary Poland) is – in our opinion – disgraceful and shocking. It is against the human rights and it publicly discriminates same-sex couples in an unmoral and disgusting way. Krystyna Pawłowicz (Law and Justice) who called same-sex couples as ‘unprofitable for society’ claimed that: „The society cannot support the sweet life of unstable, unproductive relationships of people who are not profitable for the society, only for the sake of their own sexual tie”. This attitude limits not only sexual but human freedom and is against the equality. We will be giving our own voice towards this in our next theatre production ‘Foreign Bodies’ by Julia Holewińska which tells the story of a transgendered person who seeks to carve personal freedom in a societal rock of old and deeply ingrained Roman Catholic values, but for now – we hope that today’s voting in Polish parliament will allow Biedroń’s proposals to be seriously considered by Polish government.

  2. Hey Ollie. The main reason to publish this post was our disagreement to the complete lack of respect to the basic human rights by some of the Polish very conservative politicians.
