21/06/2023 | 18:54:01 Thank you very much. Following this very rich debate, I'd like to thank all colleagues who contributed comments to this discussion. I want to underline that this is not the place for hate speech. We are an organisation to protect human rights - universal human rights. Rights that every individual deserves to be protected for, just because we are born human. Therefore I commend actually all reports, but I speak on behalf of my Committee. Therefore I'm going to focus on Ms Ada MARRA's report. I... 20/06/2023 | 19:50:05 Thank you very much, Mister President. I would like to thank each and every one of you for your contributions. There are a couple of keywords that I think are critical to underline and remind ourselves regarding the general outcome, I think, of this very important debate. First and foremost, I think several of our colleagues stated that it is foreseen that we will have further pandemics. We just do not know when.

And he replied, "Could you patent the sun?" – reminding the world that the patent of “public goods” should belong to the people. Let us come to the end of 2019. The start of the Covid-19 pandemic. This is when – in the words of the UN Secretary-General Mr... 27/04/2023 | 19:41:10 Thank you very much. So I will reiterate the call for a strong support for this report. As we are going through times of significant changes in our economies, or rather the need for change. Changes so that we can switch from a growth-obsessed, ever deepening socioeconomic inequalities framework to a sustainable and inclusive development framework. Change so that the welfare promises of the exponential technological advancements materialise for the billions. Change so that the potential trade... 26/04/2023 | 18:11:16 Thank you very much. 6 February, 4:17 a.m. Life shattered for millions within seconds. Seconds that seemed like long hours. Many thousands of people died. Millions of us lost loved ones, our very own personal histories, our collective memories as a society, our cultural heritages, our sense of being. I come from Hatay, one of the 10 cities that was hit hard by this earthquake. Streets we, I, ran as a child, homes we built with great labour, neighbourhoods where we cherished many memories...
