04/10/2019 | 12:43:17 Thank you very much colleagues. I wanted to take the floor to defend the interests of Spaniards and of all citizens in my country. I speak in defence of the truth and in defence of the constitution, which of course was a constitution drafted after a transition period which was exemplary and allowed us Spaniards, all Spaniards to defend equality. The Spanish constitution has something that many other do not in the countries represented in this chamber. The fact that there is the possibility to... 03/10/2019 | 18:17:13 Thank you very much to my colleague for this report, and thank you for addressing this issue, which I think will be of utmost importance for the next century or so. I would like to, if I may, give you a couple of examples from my country, from Spain. We've had floods, and we have had really heavy rainfall, which has led to loss of life. This happens more and more frequently. In the Canary Islands, eight percent of the Gran Canaria island has been affected, recently, by extreme weather.

This is a tragedy and what is tragic is that we come back to this time after time and we still do not manage to eradicate sexual violence. We actually find that one fifth of all children in Europe suffer from some kind... 26/06/2019 | 19:07:57 Colleagues, The assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia is a stain on the continent of Europe which works to defend Human rights and freedom. Freedom of press in this case. Her sons came to the Council of Europe to tell us not only about the situation they found themselves in, but also to provide information about this case because nobody is shedding light on what happened. The Maltese government has been clear that they don't have any information on this case. When people start investigating...
