Speeches since 2019

13/10/2023 | 13:15:07 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) It has certainly been three years since we began to suffer the first after-effects on the mental health of our society due to the harsh confinement and devastating effects that the pandemic had on our lives. The fear, the loss of loved ones in our family and friendships; the loneliness that many young people had to face in such an important stage of socialization in their lives; the need to resort to social networks as a vehicle to relate to... 11/10/2023 | 20:03:28 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) There is espionage; this report does not question it, but rather its use without guarantees. I would like to state that in Spain political parties and their activists enjoy full political rights, regardless of their ideological orientation, and regardless of their pro-independence stance. The Spanish government has provided the greatest possible transparency in relation to the espionage and has always maintained the will to clarify the facts... 11/10/2023 | 19:41:55 Thank you, President.  Thank you for this very real, difficult report. Just like life itself.  We are talking about women with disabilities and these women are clearly subject to double discrimination. There is also a problem of gender-based violence. In other words, their disabilities are further highlighted by the social ills they suffer from.  We have seen far too many examples of women being killed in examples of domestic violence, simply because they are women. Women are victims of... 10/10/2023 | 16:54:09 I would like to thank Mr Samad SEYIDOV for this interesting and realistic report of the European political situation. Little by little, the social and political climate has been getting worse in various fields, where the clear and decisive roadmap: the extreme right, has been gaining ground in the fight against democratic, social values and what I would say are fundamental rights. There are no halfway houses here.  In the context of questioning human rights, there has to be a resolute defence... 21/06/2023 | 18:17:12 Thank you very much, Madam President.  First of all, I would like to commend all of the rapporteurs for the magnificent reports we have been given today.  Spain has a long history of welcoming immigrants and the living together of different cultures and religions, and that is thanks to our geographic and strategic situation. And we have also been a country of emigrants, mostly towards other European countries and also towards the Americas. So we have experience with this and that is why the... 20/06/2023 | 18:49:31 Thank you very much, President, The Socialist Group very much agrees with the context of this report, and believes it to be highly relevant. The World Health Organization of course had to contend with the 2019 pandemic. We now have people in companies, in their workplaces, even in the streets, wearing face masks, which have now become part of our daily lives in Europe. We should remember however that just three years ago, we saw them throughout the world. Countries were simply ill-prepared... 28/04/2023 | 11:18:37 Thank you Mister President, First of all I want to congratulate the rapporteur – Ms Fiona O'LOUGHLIN – great job. Sorry you're not here. I want to congratulate you not only for the relevance and timeliness of the report, but also because of its multifaceted impact on young people.  It's a fact that more and more information is available, we have different resources and technologies, and young people are increasingly proficient with digital formats – much more than the adult population. They... 25/04/2023 | 18:27:45 Thank you very much Chair. No doubt this report is a valuable analysis on the interpretation of the legal systems each of our countries make at the European Convention of Human Rights (ECHR), as well as the relation that that has with national constitutions.  It is certainly necessary to coordinate the case law without use of hierarchies, defending the different models for integration and cooperation that exist, to making clear that signatories to the Convention must abide by the final and... 27/01/2023 | 11:10:51 Thank you, Mister President. On behalf of the Socialists, Democrats and Greens Group, we'd like to offer our congratulations on this initiative and this report. Nowadays, you can't have a conceivable university system without co-operation, without networking amongst different institutions. One of the overriding objectives of the university systems of European countries is to expand internationalisation, so as to improve the quality of teaching, research, and the transfer of knowledge to the... 25/01/2023 | 17:35:34 Thank you very much indeed, President. I would like to start by paying tribute to all the work that is being put in to this report, which is highly relevant as well as necessary because quite obviously the fight against gender-based violence cannot be successful if only 50% of society are involved in that fight. And it would be impossible to build an equal, just and violence-free society without the involvement of men.  Gender-based relationships are built on a model of the domination of men...
