28/01/2021 | 11:22:13 Mr Chairperson, Ladies and gentlemen, The problem caused by the fact that large tech companies delete what they want and leave what they want standing became particularly clear to me on 21 January, a week ago. In a group that I administer myself, a member commented; unfortunately, Germans are pretty stupid who vote for such things - this comment was deleted by Facebook. Hate Speech? I don't think so. A threat to public safety even less so. I think we agree: this man just didn't like Angela... 27/01/2021 | 11:47:02 Dear Mister Chairman, Dear Colleagues, When we debate the ethical dimensions of the political strategies of vaccination against the corona virus, we have to admit that sometimes we actually hope for more than we know. We do not know whether people who have received the COVID-19 vaccine are actually immune afterwards. We don't yet know to what extent they will continue to be contagious, and we don't know what long-term effects to expect. From these facts, there are really three premises that... 26/01/2021 | 11:53:28 Honourable Chairman, Distinguished colleagues and delegates, It's clear the Polish government has gone too far with its reforms but this report goes too far as well. The draft resolution is unacceptable in this form because it contains false claims and also a biased interpretation of the situation. Let's face it, the political situation in Poland is marked by an extreme confrontation between the two major political forces PiS and PO. It's basically like the left and right divide that we've... 02/10/2019 | 19:13:21 Thank you very much for this report. It's a topic that affects me personally. I have a woman in my constituency, who comes from Eichwalde, who in 2016 went to the Christmas market at the Gedächtniskirche in Berlin and did not return. All that was given to the relatives, was a bit of help, a mourning card and otherwise they were told that it was bad luck. That is unacceptable. We should work together here, and that is why it is a very, very good start to strengthening the very rights of these... 26/06/2019 | 19:25:19 Madam President, dear relatives of Daphne Caruana Galizia, dear colleagues, dear rapporteur. I would, (oh she's there? Shall I see? OK. OK, very nice) I would like to express my thanks and ultimate utter respect to you for compiling this very comprehensive report because this is also a courageous task to do this. You've filed together a lot of single elements that really give a very complete picture of what is going on in Malta and what we have to worry about. We've had, in this plenary, the...
