Rail passengers' rights and obligations (A9-0045/2021 - Bogusław Liberadzki)

29-04-2021
Written explanations of vote

I voted in favour of amendments to the trilogue agreement on rail passenger rights because the proposed deal does not protect or advance passenger rights enough. The amendments, which were tabled by my Greens/EFA colleagues, aimed to improve the situation for those with reduced mobility; to improve the possibility for compensation for passengers in the event of significant delays; and to reduce the scope of the 'force majeure' clause whereby too many exemptions to the requirement to provide compensation would have been provided to railway companies. I am disappointed that a majority of MEPs in the Parliament did not stand up for passenger rights by approving the agreement as presented and not voting in favour of the amendments.

European Defence Fund (A9-0120/2021 - Zdzisław Krasnodębski)

29-04-2021
Written explanations of vote

I supported the motion for rejection of the Council's position for the European Defence Fund. I share my group's concern over allocating €7.9 Bn. to a European Defence Fund without adequate parliamentary oversight or transparency. That is why I supported amendments that would allow for better ethics check, control, exclusion within the EDF. European security and defence policy should be human-rights based, transparent, and accountable to the Parliament.

"Preventing all forms of violence is not controversial. Protecting victims of abuse is not controversial. Most of all, it is not negotiable." Excellent piece from @rodericogorman as we reflect on anniversary. #IstanbulConventionSavesLives https://t.co/2KAaGIGZn2 

What's happening in East Jerusalem is shocking. International Law is being systematically broken by #Israel & violence against #Palestinians has become the norm. We need more than statements from the int. community. No more impunity. 🇵🇸 #SheikhJarrah https://t.co/JAVBVArDYe 

As #Ireland starts cautiously opening up today, with inter-country travel and public transport moving from 25% capacity to 50%, let's get on board with public transport. @CiaranCuffe and I 💚trains! They're an efficient, 'Green,' work-friendly means of transport 🚂 https://t.co/ICiB9WnR3q
