The threat of demolition of Khan al-Ahmar and other Bedouin villages FR  
 

J'ai soutenu cette résolution qui demande au gouvernement israélien d'abandonner le plan de relogement qui entraînerait la démolition de Khan Al-Ahmar et le transfert forcé des communautés bédouines vers un autre emplacement. Ce transfert forcé des habitants d’un territoire occupé est interdit par la 4e convention de Genève. Il constitue ainsi une violation du droit humanitaire international. Khan Al Ahmar se situe dans la zone du corridor E1 de Cisjordanie occupée. Le maintien du statu quo dans cette zone est d’une importance fondamentale pour garantir la viabilité de la solution à deux États et pour pouvoir créer à l’avenir un État palestinien d’un seul tenant et viable. Je demande à la haute représentante d'intensifier les démarches de l'Union européenne auprès des autorités israéliennes afin qu'elles respectent pleinement les droits de la population palestinienne de la zone C et d'exiger un dédommagement à Israël pour la destruction d'infrastructures financées par l'Union européenne.

A European One Health Action Plan against Antimicrobial Resistance (A8-0257/2018 - Karin Kadenbach) FR  
 

J'ai voté en faveur de ce rapport porté par ma collègue Karin Kadenbach. Aujourd’hui, 700 000 personnes meurent chaque année dans le monde d’infections résistantes aux antimicrobiens. Sans intervention concertée des États, dix millions de personnes supplémentaires par an pourraient décéder à cause de la résistance aux antimicrobiens d’ici 2050! Il est urgent d’agir! Je tiens à saluer l’excellent rapport de ma collègue Karin Kadenbach, et plus particulièrement les paragraphes 27, 104 et 105, dans lesquels elle encourage la Commission européenne et les États membres à adopter des mesures innovantes pour lutter contre la propagation des maladies infectieuses. Dans le cadre de mes déplacements dans la circonscription Nord-Ouest (de la France), j’ai d’ailleurs eu l’opportunité de découvrir l’un de ces outils innovants. Il s’agit des pièces antimicrobiennes Steriall fabriquées à base de cuivre; 100% naturel et durable, le cuivre bénéficie en effet d’une efficacité antimicrobienne. En proposant des poignées de porte, des plaques de poussée et des accessoires en alliages antimicrobiens aux écoles, crèches, hôpitaux et maisons de retraite, nous pouvons lutter efficacement contre la propagation des bactéries et des virus dans ces milieux.

Copyright in the Digital Single Market (A8-0245/2018 - Axel Voss) FR  
 

Je salue l’approbation par le Parlement européen de cette réforme du droit d’auteur qui l’adapte à l’heure du numérique. En créant notamment un droit voisin pour la presse sur internet, cette directive permettra à la presse européenne de disposer désormais des armes juridiques pour négocier avec les grandes plateformes internet les compensations financières pour l’utilisation de leurs contenus. Il s’agit là d’une étape majeure pour le rééquilibrage en faveur des médias qui souhaitent obtenir une juste rémunération pour leur travail face à des GAFA qui captent la quasi-totalité du marché publicitaire en ligne. Un tel déséquilibre menace la survie de nombreux organes de presse pourtant si nécessaire à la vitalité démocratique !
