It has been warmly received by the Members of the European Parliament themselves, who will join the demonstrators in the big numbers.“Europe needs a wake up call, putting youth at the centre of its construction and development for the success of the European project!”, says María Ballesteros Melero, Vice-President of AEGEE-Europe, partner of the initiative. “We believe in the European Union, but we also believe that the union is far from perfect and there is still a lot of work to be done. In order to create the union we want to live in in the future, we have to stand up now and demand reforms” concludes Danica Vihinen, Secretary-General of the European Liberal Youth (LYMEC).Youth organisations have shown great enthusiasm for the initiative.
