29/09/2021 | 10:55:35 Thank you, Chair. I want to refer to everyone who is in this home to ask you to think. We here are talking about environment, but isn't it our task to think about the effect of that environmental change and threats to our lives and human rights? Is it our task here or not to actually make our member States be responsible for that damage that states and different companies can do to the environment? Can we impose new rules, maybe, to those states that really violate the rules around... 28/09/2021 | 11:46:40 Dear Chair, dear Rapporteur, dear speakers, I want to ask a question.

The topic of systematic discrimination against Roma is not new, but the pandemic and COVID-19 and all the measures brought in to control created lots of problems for Roma communities. The number of... 28/01/2021 | 11:17:18 Dear colleagues, It goes without saying that big companies today increase their influence in our everyday life. This increased influence is actually an extra burden on them, especially in the field of very sensitive and important information. In 2010, a number of reports documented increased censorship in social networks and other communication platforms. This increase was often especially dramatic in authoritarian countries where censorship is a commonly used tool for preventing democratic...
