ACT! Chapter leader in Austria who had her freedom of speech violated meets with American Congressional delegation in Vienna
Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff's freedom of speech was taken away by a recent decision in the Austrian Supreme Court. Her next step is the European Court of Human Rights.
“We don’t want this to happen in the USA,” said Rep. Bachmann. “Every American citizen has the right to express themselves. Everyone should have the security to speak.
“We are proud of you. You are a brave and unique person. God has given you a special gift to speak out.”
After the meeting, Rep. Bachmann told Elisabeth that meeting with her had been the highlight of her visit to Vienna. Then Elisabeth walked the American delegation to their next meeting with Austrian MPs.
Rep. Gohmert and the other congressmen said they were appalled by the decision and were anxious to discuss the case with their Austrian counterparts.
Representatives Michele Bachmann (MN), Louie Gohmert (TX), Robert Pittenger (NC), and Steve King (IA) were present for the meeting.
