Speeches since 2019

11/10/2022 | 19:25:07 Thank you very much, Madam Chair. Interesting contributions. I thank you all for your contributions, especially those of you that believe in human rights and that human rights apply to all, regardless of religion, and regardless of background. But I also thank all the others that do not think so, because it's important to know that they exist. It's important to know the reason why we are here today, and the importance of this report: that is to send a signal to everybody who does not believe... 11/10/2022 | 17:59:32 Thank you very much, Mr President. Thank you for your kind words, and as you mentioned, this might be my last session here, so I'm going to miss all the colleagues here. Before I start, let me just take the opportunity to thank the Secretariat because I might forget, because I have a lot in my head and we're running out of time, for the amazing, amazing, amazing support and assistance they've shown me throughout this process of writing this report. Mr Giorgio Lodo has been really patient and... 20/06/2022 | 16:51:16 Thank you very much, Madam President. Let me start by thanking you all for your kind words and support and for showing that you are committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive Europe, which I think is the entire objective of the Charter. Rather than reactive, it is proactive. We want people to reflect on these issues and change our culture. Human rights applies to all, regardless of your background. I come from a city where we have 183 nationalities represented in the city. As a member of... 20/06/2022 | 15:06:28 Madam President, Dear colleagues, Racism, xenophobia, sexism and hate speech, in all it's different forms, is on the rise, threatening the very fabric of Europe. It sows the seeds of hate and normalises the entrenchment of the very principles that the Council of Europe was established to fight against. Intolerance and discrimination still permeate our societies, making our peaceful living together more difficult and undermining the human rights and dignities of millions of people. However... 15/03/2022 | 18:29:29 Thank you very much, Mister President. Let me start by respectfully addressing our colleagues, our Ukrainian colleagues and Ukrainian people. We stand with you, we stand with all of you. We express our deepest solidarity and support to all the Ukrainian people. Mister President, These are difficult times and we cannot be indifferent in the face of oppression and injustice! That is why we must condemn in the strongest possible terms the Russian Federation’s invasion and aggression of Ukraine... 28/09/2021 | 11:40:25 Thank you very much, Madam Chair. I'm privileged to speak on behalf of the Group of the Unified European Left. First of all, let me just thank the Rapporteur for a brilliant report. We live in a society with growing socioeconomic disparities. On the one side we have the richest 1% that will have accumulated twice as much wealth as 90% of the global population. On the other side, we have 4.6 billion people at the bottom of the global world pyramid being confronted by growing disparities in... 24/06/2021 | 17:17:53 Thank you, thank you, Mister President, Let me just take this opportunity to thank all these amazing members of parliament, colleagues and comrades for your very, very important comments. I wish I had time to be able to thank you individually, but unfortunately, I do not have time but I really, really appreciate your comments on this report. You did it with such eloquence. Let me also take this opportunity to thank and express my sincere gratitude to Mr Giorgio LODDO, sitting right next to me... 24/06/2021 | 16:09:08 Thank you very much. Dear colleagues, Today is a historic day as we are about to debate, and hopefully, adopt the Council of Europe's first report and resolution paying particular attention to people of African descent in our 70 years of history and existence. When I was elected to the Swedish parliament for the first time, I took my daughter with me to the opening ceremony dressed in my traditional African attire as it is permitted by the rules of the parliament to have traditional or... 23/06/2021 | 16:53:45 Thank you very much, Madam Chair. This is a very important topic, and I would first of all just like to take this opportunity to thank the rapporteur for writing a very very important report. Enhancing participation of women from under-represented groups in political and public decision making is extremely important. There are lots of barriers as we know for women in politics, in a patriarchal society that we live in. If you are a woman of colour, if you are a woman of colour and a Muslim... 28/01/2021 | 12:22:38 Thank you very much Mr President for allowing me to speak. This is a very important report. It's a very, very important report. I had planned to give a speech which, after listening to everybody else speaking, I don't want to repeat what everybody else has said. I want to thank the Rapporteur for lifting this very important issue which normally is not discussed, and when discussed we only sometimes acknowledge its existence and we don't move forward. We need to move forward because this is a...
