Declaration

One hundred years after the beginning of World War I and seventy years after the end of World War II, Europe is at a crossroads. If the current neoliberal and authoritarian policies are not reversed catastrophe awaits Europe and the world: further decline of democracy, increase in poverty and inequality, destruction of the environment, the inexorable rise of extreme right-wing and fascist forces which grow in the soil of despair created by unemployment and deprivation. The European Union must rediscover its original principles of peace, democracy and social justice. More generally Europe needs and deserves a new deal that places on a new basis the principles of liberty, equality and solidarity recently betrayed by liberals and social democrats.
