The languages used in 🇪🇺 @EU_Commission President’s annual State of the European Union speeches 💬 #SOTEU

A thread 🧵 1/
Wednesday, @POLITICOEurope published and interesting article on the languages used by @vonderleyen in her first #SOTEU2020 speech. In it they made a surprising claim: that UvdL had abandoned his predecessor’s balanced use of English, French and German. 2/

Out of skepticism and curiosity I went through all the #SOTEU speeches (on @europarlAV ) to see how the 🇪🇺 EU’s three working languages were employed.

I used timeshare of each language because original transcripts for these speeches do not exist.

So here is what I found:

Hats off for #blacklivesMatter protesters demanding equality for all in Europe.They created a political force that lead to an #EUActionPlan to address structural racism.

We at ENAR are eager to support in strengthening it and be key stakeholders in the implementation. #SOTEU2020 Image
ENAR welcomes the fact that for the first time, the #EU explicitly acknowledges the existence of structural, institutional & historical dimensions of #racism in #Europe and the need to address them through wide-ranging, proactive policies.

Today the Spanish Inquisition (aka Supreme Court, its historical heir) will take out of office the President of Catalonia @QuimTorraiPla
His crime was hanging a banner in the Catalan Government premises that demands the same as the UN working group on arbitrary detentions #FreeCatalanPoliticalPrisoners
What do you think about that Ms. @vonderleyen #SOTEU2020
Catalans are EU citizens, netto payers of your gages and privileges. We are treated as 2nd class citizens in Spain AND in the EU. Stop ignoring us, we also deserve to be treated with respect+dignity!

@vonderleyen sobre o Estado da União: boas intenções sem medidas concretas ou financiamento e contradições entre discurso e prática. Aspetos positivos: defesa de medidas contra os crimes de ódio, da abolição dos vistos gold e da vacina global contra a Covid

Palavras simpáticas sobre os profissionais e exigência de investimento nos serviços nacionais de saúde, q contrastam com as pressões bem recentes para que Estados-membros como Portugal cortem na despesa com saúde. Se está a falar a sério, convinha avisar as suas equipas técnicas.
Os elogios à contratação coletiva e ao salário mínimo também parecem um pouco estranhos, sobretudo quando vindos da instituição europeia q, num passado recente, pressionou os Estados-membros para desmantelarem os sistemas de contratação coletiva e congelarem os salários mínimos.

🩺🇪🇺And UvdL states her first policy proposal: as a result of the pandemic she recommends the need to "build a stronger European health union" and also to look at health competencies in the Conference on the Future of Europe.
