23/06/2022 | 19:43:32 Thank you, Madam President. After this high-level debate, sometimes with philosophical approaches, I would like to thank all the speakers who have understood the difficulty of the subjects, so much so that their remarks have been relevant and sometimes passionate. The number of participants at the end of the day proves the importance of the subject. It is obvious that today, there is a fact: that those who have a maximum of information on the populations of this world hold the power. That is... 23/06/2022 | 18:27:33 Thank you, Madam President.

We cannot be insensitive to the passionate intervention of our Ukrainian colleague: it is a call for help. As we can see, international... 28/04/2022 | 16:17:32 Thank you, Mr President. Dear colleagues, First of all, allow me to congratulate our colleague Ms Marie-Christine DALLOZ for her excellent work. What is a "true" democracy and how to protect it are two crucial questions because the questioning of democratic principles is a phenomenon that is growing all over the world and Europe is unfortunately not spared. The upheavals of recent decades, such as migration flows, increasing inequalities, and economic, social and environmental crises are...
