Born in Riga in 1950, Tatjana Ždanoka studied mathematics at the University of Latvia, and the University of Montpellier.
Tatjana holds a PhD from the University of Latvia where she was a lecturer in higher mathematics from 1972 - 1990.
She has been involved in elected politics since the late 1980s as a member of Riga City Council and later the Supreme Council of Latvia.
Following Latvia’s independence, Tatjana became a fervent campaigner for the rights of Russian speakers.
She was a founder member of the Latvian Human Rights Committee set up in 1992 to combat discrimination against minorities, and later a leader of the political party Equal Rights which in 1998 went on to merge with others to form Par cilvēka tiesībām vienotā Latvijā (For Human Rights in a United Latvia).

ACT on ACTA say NO

Greens/EFA MEPs demonstrated today against ACTA (The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement) in Strasbourg as pressure builds on the European Parliament to take action. The Group has long campaigned on the agreement, alarmed at the lack of transparency surrounding negotiations and will do everything it can in the coming weeks to convince MEPs from other groups to reject ACTA. In light of the growing public pressure and anger, a number of EU member states are now having second thoughts about proceeding with ratification. We need your support to convince the other members of the European Parliament to reject this deal. It is time to increase the pressure inside and outside the Parliament. Tell your MEPs Say No to ACTA!
