One of the things that I noticed in listening to the European Parliament debate on #Article13 and #Article11 was the live interpreters briefly mentioning their own strike action before translating the rest of the debate. The were requisitioned to translate it: https://www.euractiv.com/section/economy-jobs/news/meps-show-support-for-parliament-interpreters/
@mala Okay, everyone should read that article, it is amazing for lots of reasons, but this quote is the best:
> “This is not normal […] this would have never been done if Ms Merkel or Mr Macron were here,” complained Commission boss Jean-Claude Juncker during the session.
Oooooh! Mom and Dad would not put up with this!
@maiki I know!! That quote is amazing! Also accusing MEPs of intruding on the internal affairs... of Parliament!
