Message from European Parliament Vice President Mairead McGuinness

Big thank you to European Parliament Vice President for Relations with North America, Mairead McGuinness MEP, who joined us and alumni and friends from UNC Center for European Studies in Raleigh (NC) and USC School of Cinematic Arts in Los Angeles (CA) with a strong and timely message crossing the Atlantic all the way to the US Pacific coast.

"We at the European Parliament will always stand for truth, justice, human rights and democracy here in Europe and around the world. Just as like in the US we as lawmakers cannot do this on our own. Our strength comes from our citizens who guide us, energize us and raise our consciousness with their work, often coming at huge personal risks and sacrifice".

Presidents of the EU’s key institutions showed their spirit of close cooperation in the European Parliament today. 🇪🇺 EU lawmakers welcomed a budget deal that is a positive step for the short-term recovery - but they said they will withhold their consent for the EU’s long-term budget until improvements are made, such as linking EU funding to respect for rule of law.

We are at an historic moment and have a collective duty to deliver for all Europeans.

Pleased to welcome Commission and Council Presidents to the European Parliament today.
