Representatives from Women in Europe for a Common Future (WECF) from 30 countries together with many of their colleagues from across Europe stood in silent appeal at the doors leading to the main plenary hall. The women made their statement at the Budapest Convention Center plenary hall corridors while delegates and ministers from 49 European countries passed into the conference room to consider the adoption of the Children’s Environmental and Health Action Plan for Europe.
Annemarie Mohr of Germany, together with her 4-months old baby girl Carlotta was among those standing in silent vigil. “I don’t want to wait for another 10 years of evidence to find out if Phthalates will disrupt the hormonal system of my child. That will be too late for Carlotta. Delegates should take action now to protect our children”.
