27/04/2022 | 19:29:02 Madam President, Mister Rapporteur, Your report draws our attention to a serious problem in Europe. In Germany, France, Austria, Holland, and other Central and Eastern European countries, the behavior of law enforcement officers during interventions violates human rights. There are numerous cases of disproportionate use of force against peaceful demonstrators, including beating demonstrators or using crowd containment techniques that may threaten their safety. Instead of George Floyd's death... 27/04/2022 | 16:04:00 Thank you, Mr President, Ladies and gentlemen, The first news I remember as a child was the news of the fall of the Berlin Wall. That was the news of reunification, that was the news of peace, that was the news; the Cold War is over.

We should send a strong signal tonight with a unanimous vote to Russia. And distinguished colleagues, our hearts and prayers are with Ukraine and with the people of Ukraine who are mourning their deceased relatives, who are mourning the loss of their home, who are defending the only and one home they have... 27/01/2022 | 09:40:54 Thank you, I would also like to comment on the subject of mandatory vaccination. Yesterday we had a big debate in the German Bundestag about this. We know that in Austria it has just been decided, and I have a big problem with the words, which are also in the report, and which Mrs. Petra BAYR had also said: "No one is safe, until everyone is safe". I would like to counter with Benjamin FRANKLIN: "Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither...
