Poola naiste õigusi toetav meeleavaldus

🇪🇪 EE Ma armastan Poolat ❤️

Kuidas ma saaks teisiti, seistes täna siin valge ja punase Tartu lipu all, mille kinkis linnale 1584. aastal Stephan Bathory. Kuidas ma saaks teisiti, mõeldes oma vanaisa Jerzy Kaplinskile, kes noore poola kirjanduse lektorina kõndis neilsamadel sillutisekividel, kohtus noore eesti tantsijannaga ja armus.

Ma ei ole oma vanaisa iial kohanud, ta küüditati ja ta hukkus Nõukogude vanglasüsteemis. See on saatus, mis ühendab eestlasi, lätlasi, leedukaid, poolakaid…

Kuidas saaks ma mitte armastada Poolat, kui me jagame nii palju ajalugu, armastust ja ka kurbust. Me jagame ka väärtusi. Peale II maailmasõda, totalitaarsete režiimide põrkumise agooniast sündis uus liit, mis põhinev liberaalsel demokraatial ja jagatud väärtustel. See liit on kestnud kolm inimpõlve ja taganud Euroopas stabiilsuse, õitsengu ja isikuvabadused seninägematus ulatuses. Nende väärtuste keskmes on inimõigused. Mitte kaubana vahetamiseks riikidevahelistes suhetes, vaid alusmüürina, ilma milleta me ei saa.

Ja õigus arstiabile on inimõigus — ma ei kuluta hetkegi selle tõestamisele või veenmisele. Nii lihtsalt on.

Kuuldes inimõiguste rikkumisest kaugetes riikides võime õlgu kehitada ja öelda: “See ei puuduta mind.” Poola ei ole kaugel, Poola on siinsamas nende sillutisekivide peal. Ja nii ma palun kõiki igas liikmesriigis tõstke häält ja öelge koos minuga: “Poola, ma armastan sind ja ma austan sind, aga see, kuidas sa oma naistega käitud, see pole OK. Palun lõpeta, sest sa teed haiget meile kõigile!”

Poola on ka üks meie lähimaid liitlasi ja parimaid partnereid. Ma loodan väga näha, kuidas see riik rakendab oma fantastilise jõu, intellektuaalse, majandusliku, vaimse jõu nendesamade väärtuste kaitsmiseks. Sest nad on ohus ja tulevik toob tumedaid varje totalitaarsetest režiimidest, mis vallandasid kümneid miljoneid surmanud ja sandistanud sõja.

Need on sünged varjud, aga vaadates ringi teie seas, rääkides on poola sõpradega ma tean, et need pilved veel hajuvad.

Ma armastan Poolat ja ma tänan!

🇬🇧 ENG I love Poland ❤️

How could I not, standing here under the White-and-Red flag of Tartu, gifted to the city by Stephan Bathory in 1584. How could I not when 70 years ago young Jerzy Kaplinski from Warsaw walked these same cobblestones that I am standing on? In the same city where he, as a lecturer of Polish literature in the same old University of Tartu, met a young Estonian dancer and they fell in love, and they married.

I have never met my grandfather Jerzy, as he was deported and perished in the Soviet Gulags — a fate shared by thousands of Estonians, Latvians, Lithuanians, Poles….

When you hear news about human rights violations in far away countries, you can just shrug it off and say: „it does not concern me”. Poland is not far off, Poland is right at our doorstep. Poland is one of our closest allies, someone who shares common history in love and in tragedy. Someone who to this day shared common values.

After the second World War, out of the misery of the clash of totalitarian regimes a union was built that emphasized shared values as the founding principles of liberal western democracy. This union has lasted for three generations and given us peace, prosperity and personal freedom that Europe has never seen before. Chief among these values are human rights. Not as bargaining chips in transactional relations, but as something that we can not do without.

And access to medical care is a human right. It is as simple as that, why should I reason, explain or persuade. We base our union on shared values of which human rights is the most fundamental. This is the world we know.

But these last years we’ve come to know another kind of a world, where these values have been called into question by our friends, allies and partners close and far. It is a grim vision of a world, where the infinitely personal choice of raising a child is relegated to a simple act of breeding. Where the right over one’s body is taken from the individual and given to the sate. It is a grim vision that brings about shadows that we have evaded for generations.

Thank you my Polish friends and my friends in Poland for speaking out and for giving me this opportunity to do the same. So I ask everyone in every state of the union to do the same, to stand up and say: „I love Poland, but how you are treating women is not OK! I love you and I respect you, but when you do these things then you’re hurting all of us. Please stop because the world would be so much better if you put your amazing strength – intellectual, economic and spiritual strength – to work for these same values that we’ve shared for so long.”

The vision is grim, but looking at you and talking to my friends in Poland, I know the clouds have a silver lining. The light will get through!

Thank you!
