(Strasbourg) - “Preserving the open, neutral character of the Internet” and “making sure Internet service providers do not restrict the citizens’ access to contents, applications or services”. These are two key points of the resolution that will be voted on today during the plenary meeting of the European Parliament, aiming to create a free, safe web space. The text, submitted by the German MEP Herbert Reul, has already been unanimously voted on by the Industry Committee of the EU Parliament. The resolution asks that the provisions of the EU telecommunication legislation, “concerning the neutrality of the Internet, be properly enforced and adhered to”. During today’s session, the European Parliament will also deal with some breaches of human rights, plus maritime and fishing policies: they will also discuss the allocation of 40 million euros for the preservation of the resources of the European seas. Yesterday, the European Parliament passed a legislation about the “European Heritage” Seal, which “as from 2013 may be awarded to those places that are most symbolic of European history and integration”. In particular, attention will be paid to “across-border sites, due to their special symbolism for our common history”. Then, the European Parliament gave the go-ahead to the act for the reform of the EU Legislation about the deregulation of railway services, with a view to reducing the gap between them (infrastructure, services, costs) and other forms of transport.
