WakEUp, revive Europe!

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 15 giugno 2018

Everyone agrees Europe needs change, yet very little gets done. It is time to send a message to our leaders to stop sleepwalking towards the collapse of Europe and to take the action needed to create a sovereign, democratic and united Europe.
The organisers invite all those who believe Europe needs political unity, those who think EU political leaders must take action to revive Europe now to join the demonstration “#wakEUp, revive Europe!” on June 28th as of 13:00 in front of the European Council (“Petite rue de la Loi”, between rond-point Schuman and Parc du Cinquantenaire).“The Eurozone is in sheer need of reforms. Leaders have been discussing them for years, but they fail to deliver over and over again. They know that the Eurozone and the EU cannot work in the interest of European citizens with such a tiny budget. The spread of populist and nationalist movements shows how deep the crisis of trust is. If national leaders don’t act now, they will be responsible for the collapse of the European project”, says Paolo Vacca, Secretary-General of the Union of European Federalists. “Some member states, at the head of which Germany, do not realise the urgency of reforming the EU because, at least for the moment, everything goes well for them. But they would be the first losers of an unravelling of the EU. They think we have time, but actually European citizens are asking for a change now. Either they do it, or voters will turn to the populists”, adds Christopher Glück, President of the Young European Federalist.
