21/04/2021 | 17:19:26 Thank you, Mister President, after these minor technical problems. Ladies and gentlemen, Despite the serious health crisis that the world is currently experiencing, we must not ignore other health-related problems, first and foremost, of course, the phenomenon of chronic and long-term illnesses. These diseases are not the result of a conscious choice, just as a person does not choose a disability. Everyone has the right to a self-determined life, enabling them to participate in society in all... 27/01/2021 | 10:59:01 Thank you, Chair. Dear Colleagues, Since the development of the very first smallpox vaccine in 1796, vaccines have continued to provide a great service to humanity. They protect us against many viruses and have even succeeded in eradicating certain diseases. Since the appearance of the new virus, SARS-CoV-2, we have all had difficult times.

These alarming figures show that the number of refugees and migrants is constantly increasing. It is therefore not surprising that at European level the question of asylum has been on the debate for several years. Unfortunately, on immigration, the great disagreement between Europeans is deepening. The European asylum system is... 11/04/2019 | 18:06:49 I congratulate Ms Petra De SUTTER on the report. Reading it, we quickly realise what inhumane conditions many migrants face when they arrive on various Greek islands. The report also forces us in Europe to take a critical look at our policies on migrants and refugees. The situation in places such as the Greek islands – but not just there – is certainly untenable, but we should not stigmatise those countries, because migrants have their first glimmer of hope when they step foot on those...
