Nadia Murad e Lamiya Aji Bashar, sobreviventes da escravatura sexual do autoproclamado Estado Islâmico e defensoras da comunidade yazidi no Iraque, são as galardoadas com o Prémio Sakharov deste ano, atribuído pelo Parlamento Europeu para a Liberdade de Pensamento. As ativistas yazidis foram escolhidas hoje pelo presidente Martin Schulz e por líderes dos partidos políticos. A cerimónia de entrega do prémio realiza-se no dia 14 de dezembro, em Estrasburgo.

O Parlamento Europeu deu hoje o seu apoio à operação lançada pelo Iraque para a libertação de Mossul do autoproclamado Estado Islâmico (EI). Os eurodeputados exortam as partes no conflito a abrir corredores humanitários para ajudar a população civil e evitar que esta seja usada como escudo humano. O PE condena o “regime draconiano” que o EI impôs em Mossul e apela ao pleno respeito dos direitos das diferentes minorias étnicas e religiosas no país, como os yazidis.

The EU needs a better coordinated policy on volunteering, to give volunteers a proper legal status and help them join programmes, say MEPs in a resolution voted on Thursday. Almost 100 million EU citizens have taken part as volunteers in education, culture or arts, sport events, humanitarian and development aid work. Young people should take advantage of volunteering schemes to develop skills and acquire experience that helps them to find jobs afterwards, stresses the text.

Worsening relations between nuclear-armed states, such as Russia and the US or India and Pakistan, but also Russia’s threats to use nuclear weapons or to deploy them to more territories in Europe, are making the EU’s security environment ever more tense, say MEPs in a resolution voted on Thursday. They call on these states to reduce nuclear weapons, move them away from deployment into storage and to diminish their role in military doctrines.

Comunicados de imprensa (segunda parte)

"Release journalists being held without compelling evidence of criminal activity", MEPs urge the Turkish authorities in a resolution voted on Thursday. Since the failed coup d’état on 15 July, the Turkish government has arrested at least 99 journalists and writers, revoked the press credentials of at least 330 journalists, and closed the offices of more than 100 media outlets, leaving over 2,300 media workers without jobs. (Read more: Set Turkish press free, urge MEPs )


O Parlamento Europeu aprovou hoje a sua posição sobre o orçamento da UE para 2017. Os eurodeputados rejeitam os cortes feitos pelo Conselho ao projeto de orçamento da Comissão e propõem o aumento das dotações em áreas que consideram prioritárias, como a Iniciativa para o Emprego dos Jovens, o crescimento, a migração e a segurança. (Ler mais: Orçamento UE 2017: PE quer mais dotações para o emprego e a competitividade )


O Parlamento Europeu pediu hoje à Comissão que estabeleça um limite legal para os ácidos gordos trans industriais em todos os produtos alimentares, tendo em conta os riscos que estas gorduras representam para a saúde pública. A proposta deve ser apresentada no prazo de dois anos. O consumo elevado destas gorduras insaturadas é um fator de risco para o desenvolvimento de doenças coronárias, responsáveis por cerca de 660 mil mortes por ano na UE, ou seja, cerca de 14 % da mortalidade total. (Ler mais: Saúde: Parlamento Europeu quer um limite legal na UE para as gorduras trans )


The threats, violations and restrictions faced by journalists in Turkey will be debated with Commissioner Corina Creţu, representing EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, late on Wednesday afternoon. Since the 15 July failed coup d’état, which left 241 people dead and thousands injured, 90 journalists have been jailed, more than 2,500 have lost their jobs and arrest warrants have been issued against hundreds of media workers in the country. (Read more: Press freedom in Turkey up for a debate late on Wednesday afternoon )


New rules to curb the growing influx into the EU of plant pests, such as olive grove killer Xylella fastidiosa, and better equip member states to tackle their spread, were endorsed by the Parliament on Wednesday. The new regulation introduces preventive and rapid response mechanisms for suspect plant imports, steps up pest surveillance efforts in the EU and requires all member states to draw up outbreak contingency plans. (Read more: Plant health: MEPs step up fight against influx of pests to the EU )


Parliament backs the EU Commission case for investing in innovation, growth and job creation, pursuing socially-balanced structural reforms, and encouraging responsible public finances, in a resolution on EU economic priorities for 2017, voted on Wednesday.
