18/04/2024 | 11:03:02 Thanks. Should the right to a healthy environment be recognised in law as an autonomous human right? I'm firmly convinced it should not be. The reasoning behind it is already very flawed. The first paragraph of the report says that climate change is the greatest existential emergency for humankind and that this emergency is mainly due to the lack of long-lasting structural action. Wait a minute. The state of emergency is normally marked by the fact that governments lift or wave human rights... 20/06/2023 | 19:29:20 Thank you very much, Mr President, Dear colleagues, the One Health Global Health policy aims to destroy freedom, fundamental rights and national sovereignty. And now let me really stop with the narrative that is constantly wafting through society and also through this room and through the report, where you claim that there is climate change, which would lead to more and more animal-human interaction, which was also the case with COVID-19, and therefore we need a multilateral effort, we need... 25/04/2023 | 16:15:58 Thank you, Mister President. Dear colleagues, the title of our debate is "Road To Reykjavík" and it must be clear that the Reykjavík Summit cannot only be a reaction to the war in Ukraine, it must especially make sure that the Council of Europe works better.

We have already seen the problem with the debate: for two hours, very, very many speakers have referred to Ukraine and rightly so. But that is not the only thing that this reform of the Council of Europe had to strive for. The Council of Europe survived the Berlin Wall, thank God, and it will survive this war, thank God. But it will... 14/10/2022 | 11:39:57 Madam President, dear colleagues, This is a crucial debate in a crucial report because it is about vaccine discrimination but it is also about mandatory vaccination and the discrimination against those who decided not to get vaccinated; to decide that "no, my body belongs to me", you know, and who were not able to go to restaurants, who were not able to take the train, who were not allowed to leave the country, who lost their jobs – "get the jab or lose your job". That was the most severe...
