24/06/2021 | 17:22:04 There are about 15 million people of African descent living in Europe. It is the very first report in 72 years where our Assembly really has a focus on these people, one year after the murder of George Floyd. Even if the report comes very late, I am really grateful that the report comes and I am very grateful to you, that you really made it happen, and that you put this important focus onto this issue. Racism is quite often a topic. Anti-Black racism is not so often a topic and, it was... 23/06/2021 | 19:14:04 Thank you very much, Madam President.

When Ms Yevheniia KRAVCHUK from Ukraine applauds Liechtenstein for ratification of the Istanbul Convention I very much hope that we can be the next to congratulate Ukraine for the ratification. We very much appreciate the steps forward you are doing in the signing and ratification of the Convention. The GREVIO was mentioned as a the body who monitors the implementation. I also can inform you that GREVIO will do a... 21/06/2021 | 12:04:27 Thank you very much, Ms President. Dear colleagues, this progress report covers the time span from 26 April to 18 June. From my point of view it's really two months of concern. The pandemic is not over yet and the distribution of treatment and care is very uneven even globally. The policies of some countries, especially richer European countries, prove that there is a priority for profits of the pharmaceutical industry over global health. That's the opposite of solidarity.
