Written explanations of vote 
Members can submit a written explanation of their vote in plenary. Rule 194

Establishment of a framework to facilitate sustainable investment (A8-0175/2019 - Bas Eickhout, Sirpa Pietikäinen) ES  
 

He votado en contra de este texto legislativo porque estimo muy peligroso establecer baremos, calificaciones y distinciones entre inversiones virtuosas e inversiones negativas, en un mundo tan complejo e interrelacionado, cuando arrastras millones y millones de recursos y dinero. Iba a abstenerme, pero he votado en contra cuando, además, veo que se acompaña de afirmaciones absolutamente contrarias a la ciencia y a la realidad. Por ejemplo, quitar a la investigación en temas nucleares de fusión nuclear por insostenible, lo que es una barbaridad. Es ya excesivo; parece que la taxonomía está al servicio de intereses financieros, corporativos y lobistas muy concretos.

Emergency situation in Venezuela (RC-B8-0225/2019, B8-0225/2019, B8-0226/2019, B8-0227/2019, B8-0228/2019, B8-0229/2019) ES  
 

He votado a favor, aunque con reticencias, porque creo que el pueblo venezolano y la crisis humanitaria que está padeciendo necesita de todo tipo de apoyo, aunque no sea perfecto. Pero quiero dejar claro que estuve a punto de no votar a favor, por culpa del apartado 8, y hubiera votado en contra, si alguna de las enmiendas socialistas hablando de la salida pacífica hubieran pasado. No estamos en momentos de hipocresías cuando sencillamente las personas se están muriendo. Esto se parece cada vez más al problema de los Balcanes; la no intervención de Europa y Occidente, hasta que se decidieron los EE. UU., causó mucho dolor y víctimas. La salida no pacífica deja de ser indeseable a partir del momento que salva más vidas y dolor de lo que causaría no hacerlo.

Justice programme (A8-0068/2019 - Josef Weidenholzer, Heidi Hautala) ES  
 

He votado en contra del informe porque, personalmente, no puedo llevar sobre mi conciencia la posibilidad de abrir una brecha a la independencia de la justicia a través de la participación de las ONG.
