On 10 April 2014, a public hearing will be held at the EP in Brussels (Room József Antall 4Q2) 09:00 to 12.30 (CET) to allow for the presentation of the Citizens’ Initiative ‘One of Us’. The initiative requests the prohibition of EU financing of activities which involve the destruction of human embryos, especially in the areas of research, development cooperation and public health.
The Treaty of Lisbon provides the possibility for one million EU citizens to request a legislative proposal from the European Commission and to present their case in a public hearing organised by the European Parliament.
The ‘One of Us’ hearing is organised jointly by the Committee on Development, the Committee on Legal Affairs and the Committee on Industry, Research and Energy, in association with the Committee on Petitions.
Deadline for registration: 06.04.14.
