Last night in the #EPlenary @d_boeselager was probably the first MEP ever to use generative AI to write his speech. #1nt #CAI

For a look behind the scenes, a 🧵…
As if a general AI speech was not enough of a challenge for the @EP_Interpreters, Mr Boeselager asked the AI to tell him how to regulate AI in Shakespearean English.
Humor and poetry, interpreters’ favourite snack, right?! 😅
Luckily, @EP_Interpreters and @Europarl_EN, can rely on a document and speech management system for meeting preparation and @d_boeselager was kind enough to upload his speech hours before delivery.

Before the #EPlenary vote, some reflections from 6 years working on #EUBioenergy policies.

1. They're accelerating climate change
2. We're wasting €billions
3. Don't believe a word the biofuel industry lobby says
4. MEPs must end support for burning trees and crops

The EU’s bioenergy policies are a serious threat to the climate. They’re encouraging things that increase emissions compared to fossil fuels, and so they're part of the problem not the solution.

The bioenergy criteria in the current EU Renewable Energy Directive are extraordinarily complex - and administratively burdensome for businesses - but are largely meaningless.

1/6) #EUChina: sadly, @JosepBorrellF's speech at #EPlenary ( makes it clear Europe is still far from understanding - and most of all addressing - the worrying, underlying reasons why Beijing is de facto siding with #Russia on #Ukraine

A thread 👇🏽
2/6) Beijing has long been working to dismantle decades of progress in the int'l human rights system and replace it with one that allows for its systematic repression and atrocity crimes:…

In this, authoritarian govts like Russia's are its "natural" allies
3/6) Autocrats make a mockery of their human rights obligations, would happily get rid of this "hurdle" - and of the scrutiny that comes with it. Their only concern is perpetuating their rule, at any cost

The more the merrier for Beijing's revisionist agenda. Why upset allies?

In October 2020, India and South Africa submitted a proposal to the @wto for easing of rules that impose intellectual property barriers that restrict access to COVID-19 vaccines & treatments i.e. #TRIPSWaiver

The EU is blocking the proposal.

A thread ⬇️…
During the HIV/AIDS epidemic, high-income countries had access to lifesaving drugs while millions in developing countries were left to die.

This scenario is repeating itself due to power and greed. We need #TRIPSWaiver to end the pandemic.…
About 75% of the 4.12 billion vaccines administered worldwide have gone to high- and upper-middle-income countries.

Only 0.6% of doses have been administered in low-income countries.

Developed countries, including the EU, have been hoarding vaccines.…

First up in #EPlenary this morning, we debate the EU COVID-19 certificate.

This will be a temporary tool to help European citizens travel safely and freely again, while protecting their data privacy and avoiding new restrictions.

🔴 Watch here:…
The pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on free movement!

We need to put an end to the chaos: Without Schengen, there is no EU and there is no European recovery to the crisis.

💬 @JFLopezAguilar | #EPlenary
A harmonised EU COVID-19 certificate must bring about an end to the restrictions that have stopped people moving freely.

The certificate, and PCR tests to travel, need to be free of charge, and the data included in it must be the absolute minimum necessary.

#EPlenary kicks off with a first debate on the outcome of the 🇪🇺🇬🇧 negotiations.

Follow it live 👉…
We wanted a closer 🇪🇺🇬🇧 relationship but sadly this wasn’t possible.

The UK government just wanted #Brexit at any cost, without being clear on what that really meant.

💬 @SCHIEDER | #EPlenary
The agreement protects fair trade and fair competition between the EU and the UK.

It limits the hardship that #Brexit will cause for businesses and citizens and sets the building blocks for a potentially strong future partnership.

[THREAD] C’est parti pour la plénière d’avril.
À partir de 17h, nous parlerons, notamment, des relations entre l’Union européenne et la Turquie, d'innovation, de transport maritime et de la gestion du thon rouge. Pour suivre, c’est ici 👉🏻… 1/ #eplenary
La teneur de la réunion entre Charles Michel, @eucopresident, Ursula @vonderleyen et le président turc Erdoğan a été éclipsée par le #sofagate. Le débat en séance plénière sera l’occasion d’en savoir plus sur ce qui a été discuté lors de cette rencontre. 2/
Les écologistes condamnent l’attitude de @eucopresident lors de cette rencontre. Comme l’ont rappelé 12 eurodéputées dans une tribune dans @leJDD, sa “non-réaction” était un affront aux femmes et aux institutions européennes. 3/…

Big Pharma is calling the shots, @ManonAubryFr to Commission President @vonderleyen.

"The vaccines have been developed thanks to billions of euros of public money. Yet, patents remain in the hands of Big Pharma. As a result, governments cannot produce sufficient doses..."
"Only three contracts have been made public. This is what they look like: the most important information is hidden! For the other contracts, we will have to wait. Because yes, Big Pharma decides, not the Commission." @ManonAubryFr to Commission President @vonderleyen #EPlenary
"What an admission of impotence Ms. @vonderleyen! Isn't it for us to make the law? We are capable of imposing unprecedented restrictions on freedoms but unable to set rules for Big Pharma? We call upon a Committee of Inquiry to hold those responsible to account." @ManonAubryFr

The Commission has not learnt from the mistakes of the past, says @joseggusmao.

"This Recovery Fund has an umbilical cord relationship with the European Semester and the looming threat of a return to the infamous macroeconomic conditionality."
For @joao_ferreira33, member states will have to foot the bill of the Recovery Fund:

"Member states will have to pay for the money they receive now with cuts in the money they were expected to receive in the future."

#NextGenerationEU #EPlenary
It is positive that the Recovery and Resilience Facility has criteria for the disbursement of funds and specified objectives, according to @silviamodig.

"We need to improve the economy and to create trust in the future for the people."

1. 1st, a #transport agreement is an absolute must @davidmcallister @berndlange @CHansenEU @KarimaDelli : without an agreement, there is no fallback to allow traffic by road, rail & air freight to continue. Without it, planes won't fly & a very small number of EU & UK vehicles 2/

Es muy probable que Ursula von der Leyen será apoyada mañana por una mayoría neoliberal del Parlamento Europeo, con los votos de EPP-PPE, Renew Europe (con dudas), ECR, ID (extrema derecha) y la mitad de S&D (por ejemplo el @PSOE, ¡Vergüenza!). #PlenoPE…
Como era de esperar, la "Gran Coalición" del Parlamento Europeo (derecha, liberales, socialdemocracia) seguirá existiendo. Así es el PSOE, garante de las políticas de y para las élites.
Hay muchas razones por las que el Parlamento Europeo debería votar contra Ursula von der Leyen para presidir la Comisión Europea: su política económica, su apoyo a la OTAN y la militarización o su falta de ambición en cambio climático. ¿Y en política comercial? #EPlenary #PlenoPE

Todos os anos a UE perde cerca 1 bilião de euros através de esquemas de fraude e #evasãofiscal. A Resolução ontem aprovada no #EPlenary contém medidas concretas de combate à evasão e elisão fiscal.
#TaxJustice #TaxEvasion #Whistleblowers
A Resolução apela aos Estados Membros que revoguem de forma célere os regimes de #vistosgold, porque potenciais benefícios destes não compensam os riscos de branqueamento de capitais e evasão fiscal.
A resolução reconhece pela primeira vez 7 Estados Membros como paraísos fiscais: Bélgica, Chipre, Hungria, Irlanda, Luxemburgo, Malta e Holanda.

"Pour les Belges, Flamands, Wallons, Bruxellois tous confondus, être pro-européens ce n’est pas une question de choix, mais une vraie question existentielle. Notre pays, nos terres, ont trop longtemps été le champ de bataille de toute l’Europe." #EPlenary
Tous les grands conflits dans l’histoire Européenne se sont livrés en Belgique. Pour nous, c’est clair, il n’y a qu’un avenir possible : un avenir commun, un destin Européen. Tout le reste, ce n’est que des mensonges, des tricheries, des rêves qui tournent au cauchemar.
Ce n’est pas le chocolat, ni la bière, ni Tintin qui caractérisent notre pays, mais notre amour pour l’Europe, notre passion pour le projet européen! @CharlesMichel #EPlenary
