Last speeches

23/06/2023 | 12:41:05 Thank you, Madam Chairman. I have the honour of being the last speaker for this report. I would like to sincerely thank Ms Edite ESTRELA for this report, but also for all the work she does in the Assembly, which is consistent in terms of the fight against discrimination and the fight for social rights. Many of my colleagues have told a story, so I wanted to tell you one too. It's the terrible story, in fact, of Belgium and many other countries, which suffered a natural disaster in 2021 when... 28/04/2023 | 11:41:34 Thank you, Mister President.

Our colleague from London talked about the need for adaptation on the Thames. I pay tribute to our colleague from Canada and I remember last summer with record temperatures of up to 53° and... 26/04/2023 | 16:33:23 Thank you, Mister President. Dear Colleagues, Dear Turkish delegation, I cannot begin the presentation of this report without once again expressing my deepest condolences and my genuine emotion at what you have experienced in Türkiye and Syria. In fact, after spending three days on the ground, I cannot find the words today to describe what I have seen. There are no words to describe the nightmare, the nightmare that the people of Türkiye and Syria have experienced. There is perhaps one image...
