Maastricht Statement On Racism And Xenophobia

EDM number 544 in 1991-92, proposed by Richard Caborn on 22/01/1992.

That this House welcomes the Maastricht Statement on racism and xenophobia and the Council's reaffirmation of the European Parliament, Council and Commission's declaration against racism and xenophobia on 11th June 1986, and the declaration issued in Dublin on 26th June 1990 expressing its revulsion against racist sentiments and manifestations, finding these manifestations including expressions of prejudice and violence against foreign immigrants and exploitation of them unacceptable; further welcomes the European Council's expressed conviction that respect for human dignity is essential to the Europe of the Community, and that combating discrimination in all its forms is therefore vital to the European Community, as a community of states governed by the rule of law, and the European Council's consideration that it is necessary that the governments and parliaments of the member states should act clearly and unambiguously to counter the growth of sentiments of racism and xenophobia; further recognises its obligation to pursue and counter racism and xenophobia; and therefore welcomes the formation of the Anti-Racist Alliance. which has been established to co-ordinate activities against racism in Britain.

This motion has been signed by a total of 68 MPs.
