The parliament rejected this article completely, which is very good. The rejection of this article was a clear and very important victory for free speech and information freedom. Calls on the Member States to establish independent regulation bodies with the aim of controlling the media and advertising industry and a mandate to impose effective sanctions on companies and individuals promoting
Parlament uttalar sig mot president sexualisation of girls. This article asked member states to establish regulation bodies with the aim of controlling the media and Parlament uttalar sig mot president mandate to impose sanctions on companies and individuals.
That kind of mechanism has no place in a democratic society. Calls on the EU and its Member States to take concrete action on its resolution of 16 September on discrimination against women in advertising, which called for a ban on all forms of pornography in the media and on the advertising sex tourism.
Here, the parliament rejected the second half of the article with the explicit call for a ban on all forms of pornography in the media, but kept the first part with the indirect reference to the resolution from On the one hand, the parliament rejected the direct call for a ban. So far, so good. The parliament no longer highlights that particular article in the old resolution.
If the highlighting had remained, it would have been clear that the parliament did in fact want a ban on porn in media, but it was taken away. The reasonable political interpretation is that the parliament does not want to ban pornography on the internet in the media.
If this had been a legislative report, it would have been correct to say that the parliament wanted to ban porn in magazines, TV and DVDs. But this is a political resolution where the parliament just expresses an opinion, and then it has to be read in a different way.
If the majority had in fact been in favour of a ban, it would have had no reason to do this. Thank you, all activists who contributed by sending emails to MEPs or in other ways! Republished at Falkvinge on Infopolicy. Others on the topic: The big screen after a roll call vote [in ]. Click to find details about the vote at VoteWatch. Unfortunately, there is no way I can answer those questions, as the votes were done by a show of hands, and the exact results were not recorded.
Strange as it may seem, this is how most votes in the European parliament are conducted. The European institutions need to become a lot more transparent, if they want to have any chance of gaining the confidence of increasingly eurosceptic citizens.
The European Parliament is by far the best of the three institutions, and much more open and transparent than the Council or the Commission. It works just as you would expect.
A big screen tells you which item you are voting at the moment, and you have a few seconds to press one of the three buttons for yes, no, or abstain. When the vote has been closed, the big screen displays the votes cast, both in numbers and with little green, red or white dots representing the individual members MEPs who took part in the vote. For most of our votesthe electronic system is not used. The President then makes a judgement as to whether it was a yes or a no, and calls out his decision.
We then redo the vote using the electronic system. After an electronic check the number of votes in favour, against, and abstentions are displayed on the big screen, but not the little dots representing the individual MEPs. No data on how the individual MEPs voted is saved in these normal votes, regardless of whether they "Parlament uttalar sig mot president" completed by show of hands where it would be impossible or electronic check where the data exists, but is discarded.
In the majority of votes that are not roll call votes, neither citizens nor other MEPs can check how a particular MEP voted. I think all votes in plenary in the European Parliament should be carried out as roll call votes except possibly minor points of order. This is a way to increase the transparency of the Parliament in a simple and straight-forward way, that can be implemented immediately and does not even cost any money.
The electronic voting system is already there and has been paid for, whether Parlament uttalar sig mot president use it or not.
The standard argument against having all votes as RCVs is that it would take more time. I seriously doubt that this is true.
The show-of-hands procedure is perhaps slightly quicker when everything goes smoothly, but if you add the time that the fairly frequent calls for electronic checks take, it often feels like it would have been quicker if we had done it all by roll call votes from the start. There was a discussion in plenary in Strasbourg this week [in ] that resulted in one member asking for all the votes of a random report to be carried out as RCVs.
The President granted the request, and it did not feel like the vote took any longer than it would have if we had voted the way we normally do. And even if it were to be shown that it does in fact take slightly longer on average, I think we should still use roll call votes all the time.
The Swedish national parliament has done so since it first got an automatic voting system, and I believe it is the same in national parliaments Parlament uttalar sig mot president or less everywhere.
MEPs are elected to represent the people who voted for them. Of course the voters should have the possibility to
Parlament uttalar sig mot president how their representatives are doing their job.
To have all votes in plenary as roll call votes is a straight-forward reform to increase transparency in a concrete way. The European Parliament can implement at no cost and without delay, it it wants to.
Jag ser inget negativt med pornografi. Around noon, approximately emails from concerned citizens had arrived, but then they suddenly stopped appearing. I look forward to your confirmation that you share this view, and that you will take immediate and appropriate action to both solve the present situation and make sure it is not repeated in the future.
This email has also been sent by fax, to make sure it is not stopped by the filtering. Anna Troberg skriver klokt och resonerande: I said yesterday in my blog post that I would be sending a letter today to the President of the European Parliament, protesting about the of certain emails from citizens to their elected representatives.
I would have hoped to have sent this letter in the morning today, and I am still working on getting it sent today, but since I am working from home in Stockholm, I have run into a problem: The European Parliament blocks certain emails that I am trying to send from christian. Not all emails get blockedbut all my attempts to send my draft letter to the President to my office address have been silently blocked by the filter.
This is of course only a guess, but still:. Welcome to the wonderful world of internet blocking in the EU. And to yet another demonstration of what censorship means in practice.
To clarify, I did the following experiment: Then the mail got through immediately. After this, I made yet another attempt to resend the same mail but with the original title of the report. This mail again disappeared without a trace, and with no notice given to either sender or recipient, just as it had on the previous two occasions. After this information became known to a wider audiencemany citizens Parlament uttalar sig mot president decided to contact members of the European parliament to express their views on this issue.
This is absolutely excellent. Citizens engaging actively in the democratic process is a very positive thing, at least in my opinion. Before noon, some emails had arrived in my office. But around noon, these mails suddenly stopped arriving. When we started investigating why this happened so suddenly, we soon found out: The IT department of the European Parliament is blocking the delivery of the emails on this issue, after some members of the parliament complained about getting emails from citizens.
"Parlament uttalar sig mot president" is an absolute disgrace, in my opinion. A parliament that views input from citizens on a current issue as spam, has very little democratic legitimacy in my opinion.
I will be writing a letter to the President of the European Parliament to complain Parlament uttalar sig mot president this totally undemocratic practice. In the meantime, please continue to email members of the parliament on both the issue of the porn ban and on any other issue that you feel that you want to bring to the attention your elected representatives.
Citizens taking active part in the political process is a fantastic asset for a democratic system, not a spam problem. I am very disappointed that some of my colleagues in this house evidently have a different opinion.
Diagrams showing how snus has reduced smoking and smoking related diseases in Sweden click to enlarge. The EU is currently working on a revision of the Tobacco products directive.
The primary goal of this directive is to reduce the harm to public health caused by smoking. It is undisputed that smoking poses a major health problem, and there are a number of provisions in the directive that aim at getting fewer young people to start smoking in the first place: Judging from the general mood in the European parliament, I would expect these measures to get the support from a large majority. However, no matter how successful these actions will be in preventing young people from starting smoking, it will
Parlament uttalar sig mot president decades before we will see any health improvements in the population from these actions alone.
The only way to get a positive health impact in the meanwhile is to get current smokers to quit. Here is a letter pdf written by several independent public health specialists and addressed to the Swedish minister for public health.
My position on snus is the same as theirs. The reason for this is perfectly clear: Here is also a pdf with diagrams from the same experts that illustrate the success story of snus as a means for reducing smoking, and thus smoking related diseases, in Sweden. We are all in complete agreement that the EU needs to adopt policies to reduce smoking and the harm it causes.
It is my belief that this policy on snus and oral tobacco would help achieve that goal. Further scientific data on the health effects of snus. I am a snus user, which has allowed me to cut down my smoking drastically, even though I have not stopped completely yet. My wife used to smoke, but gave it up completely several years ago by switching to eucalyptus flavoured snus.
