MPs vote to put pressure on Berlin as European parliamentary elections loom

Greece is poised to send Germany a formal diplomatic note detailing its demand for billions of euros in wartime reparations after MPs voted overwhelmingly for the emotive issue to be raised officially.

In a move bound to stir sentiment ahead of crucial European parliament elections, Athens vowed to pile pressure on Berlin, taking legal and diplomatic steps that will throw the spotlight on crimes committed during the brutal Nazi occupation. #Greece #Europe #Worldnews #Germany #AlexisTsipras #AngelaMerkel #Europeanelections #EuropeanUnion #Politics #Secondworldwar

Pope Emeritus Benedikt XIV. alleges movement of '68 for sexual abuse of minors in Catholic church

Der emeritierte Papst Benedikt XIV. schreibt 68er-Bewegung Mittäterschaft am Missbrauchsskandal der Kirche zu

In Germany, the then-Minister of Health, Ms. (Käte) Strobel, had a film made in which everything that had previously not been allowed to be shown publicly, including sexual intercourse, was now shown for the purpose of education. What at first was only intended for the sexual education of young people consequently was widely accepted as a feasible option.

The mental collapse was also linked to a propensity for violence. That is why sex films were no longer allowed on airplanes because violence would break out amon

Four EU nations told readiness to relocate asylum seekers, «Alan Kurdi» permitted to disembark in Malta

The Refugee Agency UNHCR has thanked the Maltese government for ‘allowing the disembarkation and France, Germany, Portugal and Luxembourg for showing solidarity in relocating.’
They say that the beneficiaries are ‘relieved that the ordeal is over,’ but the organisation, ‘stresses the need for predictable mechanisms to ensure timely disembarkation in a safe port.’
Such some events show us crystal clear how much egoism is preferred to empathy, in so many nations. Isn't it beautiful to have so many rela-life possibilities to spectate this outrageous egoism firsthand? I would say so, it's an opportunity we should archive for similar continental events in which these nations look for help, we could use it against them in retrospective.
A police spokeswoman confirmed that there were 60 adults among the group and 2 minors. A reliable source close to the initial assessments e

how is it? - with state and private investments in EU? - Mediocre physical infrastructure in many EU countries, incl. Germany

Mediocre physical infrastructure in many EU countries, incl. Germany


Even rich EU countries such as Germany and Luxembourg had for many years deliberately delayed or reduced infrastructure investments in order to limit public spending. [3] There is thus an EU-wide need for better transport links, power grid connections, super-fast broadband networks, as well as school and hospital improvements [4]

Rescue vessel banned from entering Italy or Malta has almost no food or water left

Vital supplies are running dangerously low on a boat carrying more than 60 refugees and migrants that has been stranded in the Mediterranean for a week because neither Italy nor Malta will allow it to dock.

The boat, operated by the German NGO Sea-Eye and named Alan Kurdi after the Syrian boy who drowned in 2015, rescued 64 people from a rubber boat off Libya on 3 April. #Migration #Refugees #Italy #Malta #Europe #Germany #Worldnews #MatteoSalvini

Italienischer Innenminister Matteo Salvini arbeitet an Europafraktion der Rechtspopulisten

Salvini will vor der Europawahl im Mai ein breites Bündnis der Rechtsparteien und Nationalisten schließen. AfD-Parteichef Meuthen sowie hochrangige Vertreter der Dänischen Volkspartei und der Partei „Die Finnen“ nehmen an dem Treffen teil. Nicht vertreten sind Le Pens französische Sammlungsbewegung und die österreichische FPÖ. Beide arbeiten in Brüssel bereits mit Salvinis Lega zusammen.
Für mich nur logisch: Sie passen zusammen in ihren Programmen, und können gemeinsam im Grunde das schaffen, was meines Erachtens aber schon längst gegeben sein müsste. Wahrscheinlich ist es auch das Bündnis, von dem ich ausgehen, dass es das ist, und Salvini als ihr Rädelsführer nur noch die verbleibenen Parteien dafür gewinnen muss, eben benannte Finnenpartei, die dänische Variante und eben die AfD. Nur gut, dass die Rassemblement Nationale auch dabei ist, das macht es einfacher... show more

Malta, Italy refuses to open harbour for NGO-ship «Alan Kurdi», tells Germany to be responsible

The people rescued included 12 women, one of whom is pregnant, and two children. Sea-Eye head of operations Jan Ribbeck said the captain of the ‘Alan Kurdi’ has repeatedly requested a port of safety. No one could be reached in Tripoli via phone.

Some politicians like to describe the aid organizations as the ones not cooperating with authorities. It is a fact however, that no one could be reached in Tripoli through one of the eight phone numbers and that emails have not been answered either. How is one supposed to cooperate with someone who is not communicating?” Sea-Eye spokesman Gorden Isler said.

“We clarified with the Maltese and Italian authorities that we will not enter territorial waters without permission. At the same time however, we also pointed out the approaching storm and the consumption of our supplies.”
