STOP EU-DRIVEN DEFORESTATION

Forests are indispensable for life on earth, they are our lifeline. But every year, the destruction of the world’s forests increases. The EU alone is responsible for more than 10% of global deforestation, through its consumption of commodities such as beef, coffee, palm oil and soy used for animal feed. We, Greens/EFA Members of the European Parliament are ready to do our part. But first we need a solid proposal from the Commission. And that is where you can help.

FOR A WELCOMING EUROPE

A growing number of municipalities and regions in Europe are prepared to welcome asylum seekers; and many citizens want to help and show solidarity. We want to make sure that people who want to welcome other people with open arms are actually able to do so, and without being harassed or intimidated.

NEW RULES MAKE EXPORT OF SURVEILLANCE TECHNOLOGY MORE DIFFICULT

The Dual-use Regulation will for the first time contain strict export controls for surveillance technology, due diligence obligations for EU governments and transparency provisions on the type of surveillance technology exported and the name of the recipient country.
