After last April’s boat sinking between Malta and Lampedusa, where at least 950 people died, I was asking in a post if that event would wake up the European public and politics to act. I left some hope back then, that the “fast reaction of the EU” will bring some concrete actions. But I was wrong. As always the highly ambitious plans were followed by a cold shower, as the EU States didn’t respect the decisions taken by them just a couple of days before. unfortunately, the number of tragedies didn’t drop. Rather the contrary.
Ta teden bo v Bruslju živahno. V Evropskem parlamentu bodo poslanci delali v odborih, hkrati pa bodo nekaj sto metrov stran, v stabi Sveta EU, potekala zasedanja ministrov držav članic z različnih področij. Zunanji ministri se bodo srečali v Rigi, pri nas pa bodo na voljo trije zanimivi dogodki.
