29/09/2021 | 11:59:40 Thank you, President, thank you dear rapporteurs and dear colleagues, for all the powerful statements we have been hearing this morning in this room. I'm so happy that this House has an almost unanimous understanding of the urgency of the issue at hand. We truly must act now in order to continue to enjoy our basic human rights, the right to life and the right to health, in order to live in a comfortable and secure environment, and in order to leave our children a safe and sound planet – very... 28/09/2021 | 19:12:25 Thank you, President. On behalf of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe, I thank the Rapporteur who has tackled the truly disturbing and absolutely unacceptable phenomenon.

This report proves, yet again, that economic, social, and political inequalities are interlinked and mutually reinforcing. The short-term simple solution is of course to ensure higher wages and more jobs at national state level, accompanied by a fairly... 28/01/2021 | 13:19:41 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) I definitely agree with Frank Schwabe that for the last 2 years have been exactly like ground hog day. Where time and time again a small group of very concerned states is obstinately pointing out to violations by one single very big state. Russia is the single major violator of the Convention and Statute. A country guilty of a whole list of international law breaches, which include aggression, war crimes and human rights crimes...
