    Cohesion Funds

    We will be voting on one of the few policies for true European solidarity: Cohesion Policy. It helps our regions to create jobs, to embark on energy transition and to develop infrastructures. However, we demand a more ambitious budget and we deplore the restrictions imposed upon it by EU austerity!

    Animal transport

    Every year, millions of animals are transported over extremely long distances in overloaded trucks. Current enforcement of animal welfare rules between many EU countries is inadequate - and even worse to non-EU countries. Animals suffer due to maltreatment, extreme temperatures with no access to feed and water. The Parliament must vote to shorten maximum transport time and end the export of live animals to third countries.
