Last speeches

11/10/2022 | 19:02:55 Thank you, Madam President. Dear Colleagues, I would like to begin by warmly thanking Mr JALLOW for his excellent report, which puts his finger on a reality that is too often denied in our societies, namely the discrimination experienced by Muslim citizens. For decades, and under the influence of George Bush, the world has been cut in two: a so-called axis of good, that of the West, and a so-called axis of evil, that of Muslims. It is this reading of the clash of civilisations that permeates... 23/06/2022 | 16:28:34 Thank you, Mister Chairman. I'm going to ask you first if the next speaker will have time to speak as well, since he is more concerned than I am and I'd like him to speak. Okay, very well, thank you very much. Dear President, dear colleagues, Many, many members of the House have already spoken about this: the agreement between the UK and Rwanda is illegal and immoral. The return of asylum seekers to Rwanda violates all rules of international law. Amnesty International has pointed out that... 29/09/2021 | 12:19:57 Thank you, Madam President. This is going to be a rather complicated exercise since your speeches were so comprehensive and, I must say, very warm, despite the fact that there may have been some nuances in some of our reports, which, it must be said, are quite rare.

Ten years ago, in assemblies such as this one, there might still have been doubts among some parliamentarians; today... 29/09/2021 | 09:46:50 Thank you, Mister President. Ladies and gentlemen, This summer, a few kilometres from my home, in Court-Saint-Étienne, the village where I studied when I was a schoolboy, the river rose and destroyed hundreds of houses. This summer, a few kilometres away, in Erftstadt, Trooz, Pepinster, Thieu, in the Liège region and in the North Rhine-Westphalia region, 220 people were killed and tens of thousands of others affected in the worst floods our regions have ever seen. A few hundred kilometres... 30/01/2020 | 10:43:48 Thank you, Mr. Vice President, Dear colleagues, Mr Rapporteur, We don't procrastinate when it comes to children's lives. We don't think about the child. We do not condemn, we do not regret, we do not deplore: we act. Today, there are 500 children from European countries who are allegedly being held prisoner in camps in Syria. Seventy were born in my country, Belgium. There were seventy-five of them a few months ago; five of them will never return. The United Nations Human Rights Council and...
