The Anti-racism protests following the death of George Floyd (B9-0194/2020, B9-0195/2020, B9-0196/2020, B9-0197/2020)

Written explanations of vote

I supported this resolution condemning all forms of racism, discrimination and intolerance. Discrimination is counter to the values and principles upon which the EU is founded. We believe in an inclusive, fair and safe society for all. The EU can and should show global leadership in this respect

Recommendations on the negotiations for a new partnership with the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (A9-0117/2020 - Kati Piri, Christophe Hansen)

Written explanations of vote

I supported this resolution. I believe transport is one of the most important issues for Ireland concerning any future relationship between the UK and the EU. We need an ambitious and comprehensive chapter on air transport that will allow for close cooperation in aviation safety and air traffic management. Laden and unladen goods vehicles should be free to cross from one territory to another. This will facilitate Irish vehicles crossing the UK Land bridge to mainland Europe and through Northern Ireland. Appropriate measures should be put in place to avoid threats to public order and prevent disruptions to traffic flows of haulage operators and coach and bus service operators. This underlines the importance of providing direct sea routes from Ireland to the continent and so reducing the reliance on the UK land bridge
