Just reading that @Europarl_EN cancels upcoming diplomatic missions to Morocco & Qatar amid ongoing probes of corruption allegations. 30 MEPs call on to ban Moroccan diplomats from entering #EP pending an outcome in the corruption investigation. Not my approach. #Mythread Image
The European Parliament needs first to apply the current rules properly. Let’s recall that a decade or so ago, the European Parliament was rocked by a cash-for-influence scandal leading to the resignation of some MEPs. 1/1
As the result, #EP introduced in 2012 a new Code of Conduct aimed at preventing corruption. Everything is in this Code: principles: disinterest, integrity, openness, diligence, honesty, accountability, respect for EP reputation. #Brussels 1/2

It's been almost a month since our last episode of The More Than Seven Seals of #TheCryptocalypse listed way more than 7 really bad omens for the cryptocurrency "industry."

Well things have gotten a lot worse since then. #TheOracleOfTulips has more to reveal.

The contents of The Book of Fraudits were revealed by the prophet #Mazars in the form of number-free "attestations" about the financial state of #CryptoCom, #Binance, and #KuCoin.

Note that the #KuCoin attestation has never been seen by mortal eyes.
#Mazars LLP, one of the two quasi-legitimate accounting firms still auditing cryptocurrency exchanges not named @Coinbase or @Kraken, announced they would no longer audit crypto firms not named Coinbase or Kraken.

Dear subscribers and guests of the channel! #Russian President #Putin took part in the session of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (#CSTO) in #Yerevan. The main goal of participation in the summit for Putin was to keep the CSTO at least until November 2023.
In this context, the President of #Russia turned to the President of #Kazakhstan, Kassym-Jomart #Tokayev, and the President of #Armenia, Nikol #Pashinyan. #Putin asked the leaders of Kazakhstan and Armenia not to suspend their membership in the #CSTO until November next year.
It is already known that Tokayev promised to "think" and "take note" of #Putin’s request, while #Pashinyan left the request unanswered. The #CSTO summit in #Yerevan was for Putin one of the most difficult political events in which he took part this year.

On November 23, 2022, it became known about the appointment of Imangali #Tasmagambetov as Secretary General of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) for the next three years.

Such a step by Kazakhstan in the midst of #Russia's most brutal military aggression against the civilian civilian population of #Ukraine is a demonstration of Kazakhstan's complicity in the leadership of #Putin's military-political bloc.

as a state sponsor of terrorism and a state that "uses means of terrorism" against the civilian population of #Ukraine.

The upcoming resolution of the #EuropeanParliament was discussed publicly and #Kazakhstan was well aware of this. Therefore, #Tasmagambetov consciously,

Today we received letters from civil activist, volunteer of the human rights movement #Veritas, political prisoner #Ashtayev Zhanmurat.

In the letters, Zhanmurat addresses the deputies of the #EuropeanParliament,
the Ambassador of the #EuropeanUnion to #Kazakhstan, Kestutis Jankauskas, the Special Representative of the European Union for Central Asia, Teri Hakala, and the #US State Department.

In his appeal, the activist told how he and his family have been persecuted by the authorities of Kazakhstan since 2019. They want to protect him from society for his active citizenship and criticism of the authorities.

Indigenous leaders from Brazilian territories @ApibOficial and #XR Europe protested today infront of @EU_Commission demanding:

"Anti-deforestation law must include all regions/biomes, not just the Amazon in the 'Law on the Importation of Forest-Risk Products' (FERC)!"

Thread 🧵 ImageImage
@ApibOficial @EU_Commission The #EuropeanUnion is one of the largest buyers of soy and other forestry risk products from Brazil. This causes harm and destruction to #IndigenousPeoples and their lands.

“We need the EU government to stop these environmental crimes!” #StopEcocide ImageImage

Public hearing in the ITRE Commission of the #EuropeanParliament on the EC proposal for a EU Digital Identity Wallet had place today. 5 experts and many MEPs intervened.
The same experts have raised various remarks and perplexities. The goal of creating an interoperable European digital tool for the identification of citizens and online access to public and private services presents serious concerns and risks 👇🏻
For instance, it’s unrealistic to say that the user will be able to have "full control" of their personal data, as they’ll be forced to provide them in order to log in the essential related services and as a targeted legal protection of the property of sensitive data is missing👇🏻

Members of the #EuropeanParliament are protesting against the dictatorship of the #EuropeanUnion regarding the #greenpass !

“We have requested full access to the contracts signed between the companies developing the vaccines and the European Union,” said Terheș.
“After much insistence, the MPs got the contract.” Terheș then takes the contract that he received in his mailbox and shows it to the press, while he directly asks whether they think this is okay. We only see pages that have been made illegible. (blacked out)
“We are going to a state where as a citizen you cannot move freely, travel, go to shops and schools or go to work without being vaccinated, with a product of which this is the contract?”

With the introduction of a more efficient ‘Single European Sky’, the #EuropeanParliament (@Europarl_EN) wants to make #EU #airspace and the #aviation sector greener, more resilient, and fairer to consumers. (2-minute video)

Sadly, Britain is not part of this initiative.
We were told that #Brexit would mean more sovereignty. But as it turns out, it means less.

We no longer have any say in the running and future direction of our continent, even though the decisions made will affect us, whether we're a member or not.
The bottom line is that #Brexit makes absolutely no sense. It offers no solutions, no benefits, only damaging downsides.

2020 was an inconvenient year for the whole world but a very difficult one for my people in #Tigray. As I start my first day of 2021, I would like to put the following things out here.

militia and #Eritrean soldiers on the 4th of November 2020 after midnight, Hewan Hulet Shi was the first dearest #Ethiopian friend of mine who checked on me and the safety of my family back home at 00:53 AM through WhatsApp. Much love and respect to you Hewi ❤ . (2/11)
YeGetaneh Agegn Alemu, Dereje Tadesse, Gemechu Merera Fana, and Eyob Mihreteab Yohannes are also my other dear Ethiopian friends who have been continuously checking on me and asking about the safety of my relatives. Thank you ALL. (3/11)

While welcome, @Europarl_EN's attempt to engage citizens ahead of the #StateoftheEU ("discover and contact the MEPs you elected") only highlights the disconnect created by our electoral system based solely on national lists. #StrongerTogetherEU 🇪🇺 1/3
By relying on large & purely proportional lists of candidates, EU elections lead citizens to vote exclusively for a party, while ignoring everything about the candidates themselves and, therefore, about their representatives in the #EuropeanParliament. #StrongerTogetherEU 2/3
The solution is to mix local electoral districts & Member State-based lists w/ overall proportionality (cf. German #Bundestag). All candidates and lists would run across #Europe under the banner of the same #EuropeanParties. #StrongerTogetherEU 3/3

I am afraid #RuleOfLaw could become a victim of the EU's #recoveryfund and #MFF negotiations.

Let me explain briefly using the data from @ecfr's new #EUCoalitionExplorer [thread, 1/7]

#RethinkEurope @MercatorDE…
On the face of it, most EU members are in favour of pressing hard for the protection of #RuleOfLaw by the EU institutions, including through the development of new tools [2/7]…
But #RuleOfLaw is 2nd order issue for most EU members. Only in FI, NL, SE, LU, ES, MT does it feature among TOP5 policy priorities, according to our survey of policy professionals. Not a single respondent in FR considers it an issue of high priority [3/7]…

Thank you @weimers for the invitation. My 4 pts:
1. EU should use its economic leverage to pressure China
2. Magnitsky sanction against all violators of HR
3. Life-boat is welcome, but first we want to save HK
4. Radical protesters also need support, not just peaceful ones.
1. Adding human rights clauses is indeed important in Bilateral Investment Treaty, but signing the BIT itself at this moment is redering the EU dependent on China. EU should only sign the BIT if China lifts the #NationalSecurityLaw.
2. Magnitsky Act should sanction all officials that violate human rights in China and #Hongkong, from top officials like Carrie Lam to low ranking ones like returning officers and police officers.

Yesterday, the Presidents of the #EuropeanParliament, #EuropeanCommission, #EuropeanCouncil and #ECB celebrated the 10 years of the #LisbonTreaty. It marked a step forward, yet the #EU remains blocked by unanimity and has not strengthened its democracy.
10 years after the #LisbonTreaty and despite a provision to the contrary, we are still forced to have exactly one Commissioner per Member State -- with no considerations for the efficiency of our #EU governance.
10 years after the #LisbonTreaty, the #EU remains unable to act swiftly to resolve crises, defend its interests and promote its values. Where is the EU in #HongKong? In #Ukraine? In #Xinjiang? Have we ensured social protection for all Europeans? A European defence?

For #GeorgeWashington, Great Britain waged a tariff war against the US, believing US States "never could unite in opposition to it". Until proven otherwise, the US would remain "in a ridiculous point of view in the eyes of the nations of the earth". Sounds familiar? #EUisthenewUS
In 1783, #Hamilton noted that "the road to popularity in each state is to inspire jealousy of the power of Congress, though nothing can be more apparent that [Congress has] no power." Sounds familiar? #EuroBashing #EuropeanParliament #EUisthenewUS
In 1787, Charles Pinckney of #SouthCarolina had concluded that the "depressed situation of the union is undoubtedly owing" to this "absurd" requirement of unanimous consent for amendments. Sounds familiar? #EUreform #TreatyChange #EUisthenewUS
