Euthanasia Prevention Coalition (EPC) - Europe founded.

Huge Success: We celebrate the founding of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition (EPC) Europe. 

EPC - Europe has established steering committee made up of: Dr. Peter Saunders, UK; Henk Reitsma, Netherlands; Gordon Macdonald, Scotland; Caroline Roux, France; David Fieldsend, Belgium; Andrea Williams, UK; Bert Vanderhaegan, Belgium; Carlos Alvarez, Spain; Joannes Bucher, Austria; and Christoph Keel, Switzerland.

EPC and the Care Not Killing Alliance - UK have agreed to contract Dr Kevin Fitzpatrick from Ireland/France. Kevin Fitzpatrick (far left side of the picture) is a strong voice in the disability community and a leader of Not Dead Yet - UK.

We will be sharing the progress of EPC - Europe over the next few years.

The historic meeting of EPC International and the founding of EPC Europe has created a unified network of leaders world-wide who work to prevent euthanasia and assisted suicide while supporting positive social directions to deal with human problems.

Are not there Italians?

Dear Mario:

The current leadership team of EPC - Europe is a steering committee and it was based on who was willing to get involved. When EPC - Europe becomes fully organized it intends to have representation from across Europe.

Caro Mario

Could you please let me have the names of any Italians willing to be involved? I am also especially interested in any Italian Disability Groups; if you know of any and can put me in contact with them this would be wonderful!
Grazie Mille

Dr Kevin Fitzpatrick, OBE
European Coordinator
