23/06/2022 | 19:26:26 Thank you, Madam Chair. It's a pleasure to be able to speak in this. I thank the rapporteur for the debate which has ensured we can have a serious discussion about the power of social media. Social media and platforms are a massive ability around the world for people to communicate with each other, but they're also powerful. They're also controlled by very powerful people. The illusion that we often have of the freedom to communicate on social media platforms is one that is actually – as many... 23/06/2022 | 16:20:35 I'm delighted to take part in this debate. It's a timely one and a very important one. This Council of Europe, above all, exists as a protector of human rights across Europe. We are the protectors of the European Convention on Human Rights. We elect judges to the European Court of Human Rights. We are fundamentally about human rights, so I'm beyond disappointed that my government has done two completely wrong things in my view. Yesterday, they announced the introduction of a British bill of... 24/01/2022 | 19:26:29 Thank you Madam Chair. Can you hear me now? First of all, thank you very much and also my congratulations to Mr Tiny KOX on being elected as our President. I'm very pleased. I'm sure he will do a fantastic job. This report is very disappointing in many ways. One of which is it doesn't take into account the global situation facing refugees. 70 million people around the world are refugees. Whilst it obviously is an issue for a number of European countries, particularly Turkey, Greece, Italy... 29/09/2021 | 17:39:35 Thank you very much and I am very pleased that the whole day has been given over to the environment in this very important session of the Council of Europe and the reports we have got in front of us are excellent and provide a very good legal and political way forward. But I think the standout contribution today has been from Anuna, the young environmental activist, who showed the determination and thirst of young people all over this continent, and indeed all over the world, to try and bring... 22/06/2021 | 10:51:30 Thank you very much for calling me to speak in this debate. I support the report and congratulate those that worked so hard to produce it. It is very welcome indeed. Journalists around the world have died because they've tried to expose the truth about corruption, about drug cartels and about many other issues. So we mourn those that have died such as Jamal Khashoggi who were working as journalists. We should also be very well aware of the power of social media and the power of algorithms to...
