19/06/2023 | 15:21:10 Thank you, Mister President.   Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Colleagues, Our Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe has 306 members and 306 deputies; that is the number of people who died last Wednesday off the Greek coast. With every person who dies in the Mediterranean, a piece of the European civilisation that we are here to defend also dies. It is enough to imagine that we were in that boat to understand. This fundamental rupture of civilisation on the Mediterranean must finally end... 26/01/2023 | 17:14:15 Thank you very much, Madam President, Ladies and Gentlemen, On behalf of the Group of the Socialists, Democrats and Greens in this Parliamentary Assembly, I would like to express very clear solidarity with the previous speaker and his party, the opposition party HDP in Turkey.

They paved the way. They paved the way for homosexual acts to be legal today in all 46 member states of this organisation. They also paved the way for this organisation to take up the... 12/10/2022 | 11:58:39 Thank you very much, Mister President, Ladies and Gentlemen, I must say that when I listen to the debate here, I have a different understanding of this organisation than many other colleagues have. My generation, of course, inherited this Council of Europe, and I believe that a fundamental insight of this organisation is that the nation state alone cannot simply defend human rights, democracy and freedom on its own, but that it needs an association of states as a guardian, an association of...
