Mark Zuckerberg's full meeting with EU Parliament leaders
 
01:28:08
Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Facebook, met with European Parliament leaders to discuss the company's massive data breach scandal involving political consultancy firm Cambridge Analytica. Zuckerberg apologised for the misuse of more than 87 million users' data and insisted that Facebook will comply with the strict new GDPR, the EU data protection regulation that takes effect on Friday (25 May). Tajani announced on Monday that the meeting would be livestreamed. Last week, MEPs from different political groups expressed outrage after the Parliament president said that the leaders would speak privately with Zuckerberg. They had originally pushed for a larger hearing before four of the Parliament's committees.

The Joint Parliamentary Scrutiny Group on EUROPOL (JPSG) is meeting in Sofia.

The Joint Parliamentary Scrutiny Group on Europol adopted its rules of procedure. Tsvetan Tsvetanov, Chair of the Bulgarian Parliament’s Committee on Homeland Security and Public Order, described the decision as historic. “I am convinced that Europol also accepts these rules of procedure and we could really guarantee the transparency that every European citizen wants for the European institutions,” Tsvetanov said. “We should make every effort to achieve our goal and make Europol that powerful institution we want it to be,” said Claude Moraes, Chair of the European Parliament’s Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs, at the opening of the meeting in Sofia. The group will discuss cooperation between Europol and the Western Balkan countries as well as ideas for the period 2020-2022 and Europol’s work programme.

#Zuckerberg: 'It is not good enough in the EU to say that he has complied with GDPR' Moraes
 
03:55
EU Reporter spoke with the Chair of the European Parliament's Civil Liberties Committee Claude Moraes MEP following the meeting with Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Moraes said it was highly significant that Zuckerberg had come to the European Parliament, having spurned national parliaments. Moraes said that some were disappointed be the lack of depth and detail to the parliaments questions, but said that there would be hearings with Facebook employees before his committee.

EU steps up its strategy for connecting Europe and Asia
 
26:08
(19/09/2018) Statement by HRVP Federica MOGHERINI and Commissioner Violeta BULC on the Joint Communication: Connecting Europe and Asia – Building blocks for an EU Strategy For interpretation in other languages, go to: https://ec.europa.eu/avservices/focus/index.cfm?sitelang=en&focusid=3167 (change the language in the menu on the bottom right of the video player) The European Commission and the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy today adopted a Joint Communication that sets out the EU's vision for a new and comprehensive strategy to better connect Europe and Asia. The Joint Communication builds on the European Union's own experience of enhancing connections between its Member States, with and in other regions. With sustainable, comprehensive and rules-based connectivity at its core, the Communication will help to guide the EU's external action in this field and is a part of the implementation of its Global Strategy. The EU will combine a principled approach to connectivity and recognition that Asia encompasses different regions, which are home to very diverse countries in terms of economic models and level of development, with concrete action based on three strands: - creating transport links, energy and digital networks and human connections; - offering connectivity partnerships to countries in Asia and organisations; - and promoting sustainable finance through utilising diverse financial tools. The aim is to better connect Europe and Asia through physical and non-physical networks so as to strengthen the resilience of societies and regions, facilitate trade, promote the rules-based international order, and create avenues for a more sustainable, low-carbon future. This Joint Communication will inform the EU's engagement with its partners from the neighbourhood to the Pacific, bringing benefits for the people of Europe and those countries who see the value of our approach to connectivity. The Joint Communication adopted today will now be discussed in the European Parliament and the Council, and will contribute to discussions on connectivity at the upcoming Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) Summit, to be held in Brussels on 18-19 October. A full press release, including statements of High Representative/Vice-President, Federica Mogherini, Vice-President Jyrki Katainen, and Commissioners Neven Mimica and Violeta Bulc, is available online, as are a memo explaining the EU's approach to connecting Europe and Asia, a factsheet on the strategy, and the Joint Communication itself.

France: MEPs call on Zuckerberg to face inquiry at European Parliament
 
01:47
The European Parliament (EP) discussed the Facebook/Cambridge Analytica scandal in a plenary session in Strasbourg on Wednesday, calling Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg to come to the EP and answer their questions. Ska Keller of the Group of the Greens/European Free Alliance called on Facebook's worldwide responsibility and reach: "The social network may be based in the Silicon Valley, but it's active worldwide and therefore it has also responsibilities all across the globe. And I've said it before and I'll repeat it again, Mark Zuckerberg has to come to the EP [European Parliament] to answer our question and a simple apology will not do." Also the European United Left/Nordic Green Left urged Zuckerberg to come to the European Parliament, to explain how the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that should safeguard Europeans' privacy: "I want Zuckerberg to come here and answer to the competent committee and I want to hear from him how Facebook actually intents to implement the GDPR after 25 May." The GDPR was also deemed not enough by the ALDE group, with Sophie in 't Veld saying that: "While we're busy barricading the front door to keep the likes of Mr Zuckerberg out, the backdoor is wide open, and we're giving away our personal data by truckloads, not just to our own government agencies but also to other countries like the United States, with legal safeguards which carry about as much weight as Donald [Trump]'s tweets."

Note on the rejected EU Constitution and Lisbon Treaty: The people of France and the Netherlands rejected the proposed EU constitution in the 2005 referendums. After this, other countries cancelled a promised referendum and the EU Constitution was re-written as an "amending treaty" or a "reform treaty" and named "Treaty of Lisbon". On the basis of this deceit, they claimed that no referendums are necessary on the Lisbon Treaty. Ireland was constitutionally required to hold a referendum and on the 12 June 2008 the people of Ireland gave a resounding No to Lisbon. Yet this vote is not being respected and the rule of law is being ignored. The EU leaders agreed at the June 19-20 EU Summit that ratifications must go on. Moreover, no other government is asking the people. The Lisbon Treaty establishes a new "European Union" with joint citizenship - an EU "federal" State that is technically and politically empowered to centralize more power in Brussels. The treaty also stipulates the militarisation of the Union in order to 'police the world' just like the US does today. ..................................

"Parliament is ridiculous", EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker
 
03:03
European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has launched a bitter attack on members of the European Parliament for failing to show up. Standing up in Strasbourg, he denounced the body as "ridiculous, totally ridiculous". Estimating the number of MEPs at around 30, he said it proved that the parliament was "not serious". Parliament President Antonio Tajani reacted furiously, accusing him of a lack of respect. "You can criticise the parliament, but it's not the commission's job to control the parliament, it's the parliament that has to control the commission," he said. "I will never again attend a meeting of this kind" EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said. But the clash continued. Mr Juncker, who is in charge of the EU's executive body, angrily rebuked MEPs for failing to attend the session reviewing the six-month presidency of Malta, the bloc's smallest member state. It was one of the most acrimonious public rows between top EU officials in recent years. http://www.politico.eu/article/jean-claude-juncker-european-parliament-is-ridiculous/ -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "First Changing Of Queen's Guard By Royal Navy Buckingham Palace" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NB1siCOhTNE -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Cosac meeting in Sofia: start of Bulgarian presidency of European Union
 
01:50:41
Today a meeting of the heads of the Parliamentary Committees for Union Affairs of Parliaments of the European Union (COSAC) is taking place in Sofia, Bulgaria. It marks the start of the parliamentary dimension of the Bulgarian EU Presidency. During its Sofia meeting COSAC will discuss the priorities of the Bulgarian EU Presidency: youth, economic growth, digital economy, the Western Balkans, the future of Europe, and the cohesion policy. Chairman of the European Affairs Committee in the Bulgarian Parliament Kristian Vigenin welcomed the participants in the meeting and congratulated Estonia and its Parliament on the successful EU Presidency which preceded the Bulgarian one. Explaining the origin of the motto of the Bulgarian EU Presidency, United We Stand Strong, Vigenin said that the EU needs strength and determination to respond to the expectations for security, economic growth and coping with climate change. He said that the process of the EU enlargement to the Western Balkans has no alternative, and is one that guarantees security and prosperity. Vigenin noted that this is why the Bulgarian EU Presidency is guided by the understanding of security and stability through cooperation and integration, and through better connections of the region with the European single market. He dwelled on other highlights of the Bulgarian EU Presidency: structuring the priorities of the next EU budget, work on strengthening the visibility of the Danubian Region and the Black Sea Region, improving their connectivity. COSAC's discussions on Monday are focused on three key topics: the priorities of the Bulgarian EU Presidency, EU's Future: Strength in Unity, and the role of the EU macro-regional strategies. The forum is attended by European Commission Vice President Frans Timmermans, Bulgarian Vice President Iliana Iotova and Chair of the European Parliament's Regional Development Committee Iskra Mihaylova, among others. - Introduction by Kristian VIGENIN, Chairman of the Committee on European Affairs and Oversight of the European Funds, National Assembly of the Republic of Bulgaria - Keynote by Iliana IOTOVA, Vice-President of the Republic of Bulgaria - Keynote by Frans TIMMERMANS, First Vice-President of the EC in charge of Better Regulation, Inter-Institutional Relations, the Rule of Law and the Charter of Fundamental Rights - Keynote by Iskra MIHAYLOVA, Chair of the Committee on Regional Development (REGI), European Parliament - Debate

During the parliament session in Strasbourg, France, 448 MEPs voted in favour of invoking Article 7 against Hungary, while 197 voted against the motion and 48 abstained. According to RT, Article 7 of the 2007 Treaty of Lisbon, often dubbed ‘nuclear option’, is designed to be applied if there is “a clear risk of a serious breach” of the EU values by one of the member states. Once the motion was passed, it has to be approved by 4/5 of the European Council. Then, if the procedure is implemented fully, a decision adopted by the "qualified majority" of the EU states may lead to Hungary’s suspension in voting rights at the European Council. Hungary, led by the right-wing government of Viktor Orban, had been accused by the Brussels of allegedly undermining the rule of law in the country, mainly by standing up to George Soros founded "Universities" and Soros regime change "NGOs". Orban confronted a hostile EU Parliament, and gave a fiery speech, vowing to keep Hungary independent and free of EU neoliberal, globalist dogma, telling MEPs, "you condemn us because we are not a nation of migrants." UKIP's Nigel Farage defended Orban, blasting Eurocrats for their condemnation of the Hungarian PM, who has put in place measures to restrict the influence of George Soros. #Orban #Farage #GeorgeSoros #TheDuran

From budgets to foreign affairs, the European Parliament tackles many complex issues. If all 751 members were to debate these issues together, there would be too many cooks in the kitchen! The Parliament found a better recipe for decision making by creating a number of committees. Satisfy your appetite for knowledge by learning more about Parliament committees and their activities.

Viktor Orban strikes back at EU, Visits Moscow to do business with Putin

The Duran – News in Review – Episode 117. The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss Viktor Orban's recent trip to Moscow following a contentious EU Parliament session where the Hungarian PM was punished by MEPs with an Article 7 sanctioning of Hungary, for daring to take on the George Soros globalist paymaster. ***** SUPPORT US ON PATREON: https://www.patreon.com/theduran VISIT.

Less than a week after his government was condemned in a vote in the European parliament, Orban is in Moscow for talks about energy with Putin. His visit to Russia is the political equivalent of giving the EU the finger following last week’s humiliation. Orban is not alone. In his battle with the EU over immigration and the rule of law, he is supported by Poland and the Czech Republic. Poland, which is also facing an Article 7 procedure against it by the European Commission, has vowed to protect Hungary, just as Hungary has vowed to protect Poland. So there is no way that the voting rights of either country can be removed, since the ultimate vote to do so requires unanimity. Orban also recently received the support of Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis and of the Italian Minister of the Interior, Matteo Salvini. These politicians have voiced support for Orban's stance against immigration. But they also support his pragmatic approach to Russia. Salvini is a well-known critic of the Russia sanctions, and Italy has said they should end. Parts of the Austrian government agree, the Austrian Foreign Minister Karin Kneissl having recently had Putin as a personal guest of honor at her wedding, while the Vice-Chancellor, Heinz-Christian Strache, is well known for his pro-Russian and pro-Putin views. On the other hand, Chancellor Sebastian Kurz has reassured critics that Austria is rooted in the EU and shares its stance towards Russia. #ViktorOrban #VladimirPutin #HungaryRussia #TheDuran

Catalonia crackdown a foretaste of EU political suppression - Nigel Farage MEP
 
04:35
http://www.ukipmeps.org | http://www.ukip.org/join • European Parliament, Strasbourg, 03 October 2017 • Nigel Farage MEP, UK Independence Party (UKIP), President of the Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy Group (EFDD) in the European Parliament - http://www.nigelfaragemep.co.uk @Nigel_Farage • Debate: State of play of negotiations with the United Kingdom [2017/2847(RSP)] Transcript: Aside from the really important issue of Brexit, I think European citizens, those that do take any interest in what happens here, will be stunned that Mr Juncker comes here for his one appearance in the Strasbourg session this week and there is absolutely no mention made of the dramatic events that have taken place inside a European Union member state, that is allegedly a modern democracy. One of the reasons that I always wanted Brexit was because I thought the system of law making whereby the Commission has the sole right to initiate legislation was something that would in fact damage, and in the end destroy, any concept of national democracy. And yeah, I’ve called the European Union undemocratic, I’ve called it antidemocratic, but never, ever in my fiercest criticisms here did I think we would see the police of a member state of the union injuring 900 people in an attempt to stop them going out to vote. Whether or not it was legal nationally for people in Catalonia to have a vote, surely people are allowed to express an opinion. We saw women being dragged out of polling stations by their hair, old ladies with gashes in their forehead. The most extraordinary display and what do we get from Mr Juncker today? Not a dickie-bird. In fact previously we had that the rule of law must be maintained and I think it is quite extraordinary to realise that this union is prepared to turn a blind eye. Can you imagine the British police would have roughed up a couple of Scottish National Party protestors or if something happened against a pro-Remain rally you’d all be screaming blue murder, indeed the calls would be that the United Kingdom must go before the European Court of Human Rights and yet with this you don’t even want to talk about it. Knowing as I do, your advance plans, seven of you members states here with your military police, your euro gendarmerie force, all I can say once again is thank god we’re leaving. Brexit was an act of liberation, it was a voice of national self-determination that cannot and will not be stopped, but through this negotiating process I’m afraid from the start you’ve treated us as if we’re some kind of hostage. Unless we pay a ransom, unless we meet all of your demands, all of your demands, then you won’t even have an intelligent conversation with us about trade heading on from here. There are no guarantees that whatever Mrs May says or does that you will ever, even when we’ve met your demands, that you will ever come to us and want to have a sensible trade agreement. And I have to say, that it is sad, in fact it was pitiful, to see the British Prime Minister in Florence. I heard you say that you thought she was being conciliatory, that she’s been grown up, people are happy with what she’s said. Actually Mrs May I’m sad to say isn’t worldly enough to recognise that when you face up to a bully the one thing that you do not do is try to appease them. She’s begging you to give her a transition period and there’s no guarantee that you will do it. So I do actually agree with the criticisms that I’ve heard around the room about the mixed messages coming out from the UK government. I just hope that in Manchester the Conservative Party start to say in public what they’re all saying to me in private, that she’s a waste of space, she needs to go, that we need a proper Prime Minister who says to Monsieur Barnier ‘okay, here’s a deadline. Here’s a date, we work towards that date and if we can’t reach a sensible deal on trade and everything else then we are simply leaving and reverting to WTO rules.’ This charade cannot go on for year after year, after all we voted for Brexit. .................... • Video: EbS (European Parliament) .................................. • EU Member States: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Germany, Denmark, Estonia, Spain, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, United Kingdom

Transcript Four years ago I stood here and said that bombing Libya would be a huge mistake, but of course the UK parliament and this parliament were desperate, there was a clamour to go to war. And so now we have a failed state in Libya, which is now a conduit being used for criminal trafficking gangs trying to bring people to Europe. We are guilty for this crisis. We are directly guilty for the drownings that are going on. And we are hypocrites in this place when we talk about poverty in Africa, when we pursue a common agricultural policy that puts barriers up to them selling us their agricultural produce; where we have a fisheries policy that rapes and pillages their seas and has caused environmental destruction. And we just assuage our consciences by giving away a bit of foreign aid. I am not blind to the human suffering that we've caused in many of these countries. I would call on this parliament, this commission to end the barriers to trade, to stop the fisheries policy, to ask the United Nations to get involved and to try and help. But the real question we face, is what are we to do. Are we to go down the Australian system in dealing with this crisis? And indeed, the Australian premier Tony Abbott has offered us his advice and help. Australia faced this, and Australia not only has stopped the boats from coming, they've stopped people from drowning. But no, we're not interested in what the Australians have done, we have decided that we can deal with this on our own. So we decided that people can come and that people won't be sent back. Now, I suspect that it's a shock, and will be a hell of a shock to many European citizens including the British to understand that we've already agreed a Common European Asylum System. And what today is about, and today's resolution is the direct implementation of it. The problem, ladies and gentlemen, is this: the definitions for who qualifies for asylum are so wide they include not just people coming from war, not just people coming from failed states - Mr Juncker this morning seemed to suggest it would even include people who are suffering poverty. I'm sorry, we simply can't accept countless millions. Already in countries like mine, 77% of the population say, we cannot take immigration at current levels. But there is a real and genuine threat. When ISIS say they want to flood our continent with half a million Islamic extremists, they mean it, and there is nothing in this document that will stop those people from coming. Indeed I fear we face a direct threat to our civilisation if we allow a large number of people from that war-torn region into Europe. It is ironic that nine days before a British general election, Mr Cameron and Mr Miliband are not engaged in this debate. And in fact the UK can do nothing. We are impotent. We have surrendered our ability to get involved. I promise my party will stand up to this impending disaster for all concerned. .................... • EU Member States: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Germany, Denmark, Estonia, Spain, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, United Kingdom

European Parliament INTA Committee, 22 January 2015 on the inclusion of ISDS in TTIP
 
03:13
Regarding the European Commission’s recent consultation on TTIP and ISDS, David fears that the concerns of the 150,000 respondents may be disregarded by the Commission. ISDS is a mechanism that gives disproportionate rights to multi-national companies against the rights of public authorities to regulate in the public interest. It also gives foreign companies and foreign investors greater rights than domestic ones. David fears the Commission’s plan may be to tinker – to repackage, reshuffle and re-word in order to overcome fundamental flaws with ISDS. Conclusions on ISDS in TTIP must also be applied to CETA, Singapore and the ISDS mechanism. The view of the S&D group is that ISDS should be scrapped; let’s “rip it up and start again”: the Commission’s report on the consultation has not drawn the correct conclusions from the identified problems.
