Tsipras, Magnette, Keller, Hamon to Discuss 'Αn Alternative for European' in Brussels

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, Minister-President of Wallonia Paul Magnette, Co-chair of the Greens/EFA group Ska Keller and Candidate to the French Presidential Election 2017 Benoit Hamon will speak at an event organized by the European Parliament's Progressive Caucus (PC) in Brussels, on June 21. 
The event, titled "Τhe Missing Scenario - Αn Alternative for Europeans", will discuss the current political, economic and social conditions in Europe and propose alternatives.
The three Presidents of the Greens, European left (GUE/NGL) and S&D groups will also intervene shortly at the beginning of this discussion.
