“The Slovak Parliament passed a law two weeks ago that limits the freedom of the minorities living in the territory of Slovakia to use their mother tongue. As a user of sign language, it is a duty for me to stand for the value and right of freedom of language use, and I will work for this right in the European Parliament as well. My speech calls to everyone. I want a Europe that grants the rights for everybody to be able to live a complete life and to assert himself. I want a Europe where opportunities are equal opportunities in reality for the persons with disabilities as well. I would like to thank for Joseph Daul, vice-president of the European People’s Party, to have given me the chance to take the floor on this very special day. This is the evidence that diversity, tolerance and equal opportunities are true for Europe indeed.
