European Union citizenship is something that most of us have taken for granted. We can travel, work and study throughout the EU. We can go to live in another EU country. For me, European Union citizenship is an essential part of my identity and demonstrates a commitment to partnership and peace. I have always encouraged constituents to contact me with their concerns but I have been overwhelmed by the hundreds of emails over the past months from people distressed about losing their EU citizenship........

"There will be uncertainty for a least a decade if Wales is forced to exit the European Union, particularly if that includes exiting the Single Market and Customs Union.

I am sure that many of you are alarmed at the predictions of the damage leaving the European Union will do to the Welsh economy. Wales benefits from EU membership more than any other part of the UK. We receive more back in funding than we pay in. The majority of our exports go to EU countries.......... More.

Three years ago I attended the climate change talks in Paris and called on the Welsh Government to formally approve the Paris agreement on Climate Change.

It is very nearly Christmas, the time of year when we think about food more than ever! I hope everyone will try to shop local and support our fantastic food producers in Wales. Welsh produce has become more well-known and supported than ever before, with demand for quality local produce rising. Im sure that many of us will be eating Welsh lamb or beef over the holidays, sprinkled with Halen Mon salt...... More.

One of the privileges of being an MEP is that I meet individuals and groups from across the country doing fantastic work for their communities and for other people. Last week in the European Parliament I met an impressive Welsh woman, Sara Pickard....... More.

I have long campaigned on animal welfare: an issue close to my heart and to many of yours. I know that from the number of emails and letters I receive on the subject. So it's shocking to see evidence that leaving the EU will have a very negative impact on animal welfare........... More.

Earlier this month, the European Parliament voted with a large majority to adopt objections on placing genetically modified soybeans on the market in Europe. Since the beginning of 2014, the Parliament has adopted 16 objections to GMO authorisations, of which 11 for food and feed imports. Unfortunately, despite the Parliament voting repeatedly against GMO authorisation, and despite many Member States opposing GMOs, the Commission continues to authorise them............ More.

The recent referendum on independence in Catalonia has had an impact across Europe and the world. What the Spanish government tried to suppress as an "internal Spanish problem" has attracted global attention. Given how quickly the situation has been evolving, new developments may have occurred even by the time you read this column.............. More.
