“Klibberen” as immaterial cultural heritage?

Ringing the rattle "Klibberen" is an old tradition in Luxembourg. The altar servers have launched an initiative to have this tradition included in the national list of intangible cultural heritage. Our MP André Bauler welcomes their initiative and asked the Minister of Culture whether she would be willing to support the altar servers in this process, or even to register the tradition of "Klibberen" as intangible cultural heritage.

„D’Klibberen ass eng al Traditioun aus dem Elsass a vu Lëtzebuerg wou d’Kanner vu Gréngen Donneschdeg bis Ouschtersonndeg d’Kiercheklacken ersetzen a Moies, Mëttes an Owes mat hire Klibberen duerch d’Stroosse ginn.

D’Lëtzebuerger Wort schreift haut, datt déi Verantwortlech vun de Lëtzebuerger Massendénger derfir suerge wëllen, datt d’Klibberen op déi national Lëscht vum immaterielle Kulturierwen opgeholl gëtt. Dofir maachen si en Opruff un d’Bevëlkerung fir Dokumentatiounsmaterial ze kréien an hire Froebou op hirem Internetsite auszefëllen. Dës Initiative ass begréissenswäert a soll deementspriechend och ënnerstëtzt ginn.

An deem Kontext wollt ech der Madamm Kulturministesch folgend Froe stellen:

  1. Wéi steet d’Madamm Ministesch zu der Initiative vun de Lëtzebuerger Massendénger?
  2. Wier d’Madamm Ministesch bereet d’Klibberen op déi national Lëscht vum Kulturierwen opzehuelen?Wa jo, ënner wat fir enge Bedéngungen?
  3. Ass d’Madamm Ministesch bereet, de Promoteure vun dëser Initiative mat Rot an Dot zur Säit ze stoen an hinnen Experten, z.B. aus staatleche Verwaltungen, unzeginn, déi si an hirer Aarbecht begleede kënnen?

Operations on intersex children – will they also be banned in Luxembourg?

Operations on intersex children are not uncommon. Intersexuality is often seen as a medical problem that needs to be addressed. Regardless of whether these children are healthy, they are being refused a choice that they should have been able to make a later date. In Germany, a law is currently being discussed prohibiting this practice and aiming to strengthen intersex children in their self-determination. Such a law is planned for Luxembourg. What is the latest stand on this law and when should this law be submitted? Our deputies Carole Hartmann and Max Hahn have inquired with the respective ministries.
