Implementation of the remaining provisions of the Schengen acquis relating to the Schengen Information System in Bulgaria and Romania (A8-0192/2018 - Monica Macovei) BG  
 

Днес за пореден път на дневен ред е приемането на България и Румъния в Шенгенското пространство. Днес за пореден път Европейският парламент изразява ясната позиция, че двете държави са изпълнили всички технически критерии за членство и са напълно готови за присъединяване. Въпреки многократните призиви отправени от Европейския парламент от 2011 г. насам, Съветът настойчиво продължава да ни блокира пътя. При все това, България е външна граница на Съюза. Това поставя под въпрос сигурността на всички европейски граждани.
Напоследък често говорим за двойни стандарти. Говорим и за Европа на две скорости. За съжаление истината е, че Европа отдавна си е на две скорости. Един от основополагащите принципи на ЕС – за свободното движение на хора, не важи за българските граждани. На моите съграждани не им се предлага и еднакво качество храни. Предложението за поетапното ни приемане в Шенген само с въздушните и морските ни граници може спокойно да се тълкува по същия начин – като поредния двоен стандарт.
Вместо да се бори срещу тези поредни двойни стандарти, прилагани към нашата страна и нейните граждани, българското правителство сметна, че европредседателството не е подходящ момент за отстояване на националните ни интереси. Това са отново пропуснати възможности за България.

Permitted uses of certain works and other protected subject-matter for the benefit of persons who are blind, visually impaired or otherwise print disabled (A8-0097/2017 - Max Andersson) BG  
 

Предложението за директива поставя въпроса за достъпа на слепи хора и хора с нарушено зрение или увреждане, което ги възпрепятства да четат печатни материали, до културния, икономическия и социалния живот на равни начала с останалите. Страните по Маракешкия договор ще имат задължението да установят набор от задължителни ограничения и изключения от авторското право и сродните му права в полза на тази група, което представлява важна стъпка към премахване на тази форма дискриминация.
Поради тази причина дадох подкрепата си за предложението за директива.

Cross-border exchange of accessible format copies of certain works and other protected subject-matter for the benefit of persons who are blind, visually impaired or otherwise print disabled (A8-0102/2017 - Max Andersson) BG  
 

Хартата на Европейския съюз забранява всички форми на дискриминация, в това число и дискриминацията основана на увреждане, което би могло да представлява пречка пред пълноценното участие в социалния и професионалния живот. В този смисъл Маракешкият договор представлява важна стъпка към преодоляването на тази несправедливост. Дадох подкрепата си за предложението за регламент, защото това ще позволи обмена на копия в достъпни формати между Съюза и трети държави, които са страни по договора.

Written questions 
Members can submit a specific number of questions to the President of the European Council, the Council, the Commission and the Vice-President of the Commission/High Representative of the Union, for written answer. Rule 138, Annex III
