This motion treats Europe and European history with disdain

In the European Parliament on Wednesday 20 September, Claire votes against the EU’s resolution for historical remembrance due to its revisionist attempts to tarnish historical facts and propagate the EU’s contemporary narrative. She claims that the motion is designed to make us feel ashamed of our European history whilst unremorsefully hijacking the horrors of the Holocaust (including omission of ‘Jews’ from the motion), and the fight against fascism, to push for more EU expansionism.

Claire concludes by paying tribute to the European Enlightenment in bringing forth the values we enjoy so dearly – highlighting the ideals of freedom of speech, national sovereignty and democracy as those of primary importance. She says the EU has forgotten these values, and that we should not allow the EU to change European history for their own political agenda.
