Last year, a huge majority of the European Parliament agreed to set up a Committee of Inquiry on animal transport. A historic moment. Tomorrow, @EP_AnimalTran can make a change. #StopLiveTransport

Constructive meeting with #Mica & #Pyrite campaigners with @Left_EU in the EuroParl today. Earlier, powerful contributions from @AnnOwens2021 & Joe Morgan @mondello25 at @EP_Petitions ensure that Euro Parl will probe further & seek answers from Irish Gov. #100percentredress

Today, @EP_Petitions will hear from mica & pyrite homeowners in Ireland. Thousands of homes have been built with defective building blocks loaded with excessive amounts of a naturally occurring mineral known as mica. Homes that are now crumbling. #MicaHomelessCrisis
Next in @EP_Petitions: - Petition on funding for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis 🇳🇱 - Petitions on defective building blocks in construction 🇮🇪 Tune in here: bit.ly/3pd6TzL

How did the blocks get to market and why regulations were not enforced when the problem came to light some years ago? Blocks with more than 1% of mica are safe. Samples show as much as 57% of mica in them. Families deserve answers and #MicaRedress. micaactiongroup.com/

Previous government offers still forced families to pay significant amounts of money that they could not afford. Questions also remain on whether sufficient changes have been implemented so similar problems do not occur in the future. #MicaFailedRegs thejournal.ie/mica-pyrite-54…

"These laws are no good and these regulations are no good if they are not implemented. It sends out a message to people, 'we can get away with whatever we want.'" @lukeming on #micaredress in @EP_Petitions

"It's not only the potential financial burden. It's the mental trauma of waking up day after day not knowing if part of your house is going to be there." @MacManusChris on #MicaFailedRegs in @EP_Petitions

Co-Presidents @ManonAubryFr & @schirdewan met with mica and pyrite homeowners from Ireland. The Left stands in solidarity with #MicaHomelessCrisis and expresses its full support for #MicaRedress. Those responsible must be held to account and there must be justice for families.

Ante el aumento del racismo sistémico y estructural, necesitamos todo el apoyo político e institucional para alcanzar el compromiso de eliminación del racismo y la xenofobia. Eso mismo hemos exigido hoy en el Parlamento Europeo.

Hace casi 1 año sacamos este christmas navideño👇 En estos días se inauguró de nuevo el alumbrado en Madrid y #LaCañadaReal sigue a oscuras. Siguen sin luz 4000 personas. 1800 niños y niñas esperan todavía la llegada de los reyes magos. @plataformaluzcr
