Statement re. event organised by EU Today in the European Parliament on 23 January 2020

Statement re. event organised by EU Today in the European Parliament on 23 January 2020

10.02.2020

We have recently learned of an event held in the European Parliament on January 23rd, 2020, organised by the “EU Today” website. The event’s title, “NGOs: between public good and bad governance”, would suggest the event covered an interesting and important topic, the functioning of NGOs in the EU. Unfortunately, as we’ve learned from one of the unlucky participants of the event, this title was just disguise for another action by “EU Today” founder, former UKIP employee, far-right racist and Holocaust denier, Gary Cartwright, aiming to discredit ODF and our work, specifically in Kazakhstan.

Why do I “snitch” abroad and the right cannot stand it? Let’s remember, Law and Justice does not equal Poland

Last week – not for the first time, and probably not the last – I have been met by a wave of hatred from the right-wing community.
