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.
"There is no doubt saying that Europe is at a crossroads. Ignoring the necessity to reaffirm principles of solidarity, democracy, sustainability and equality by suggesting limited game-changing proposals is a denial of the ongoing process of disintegration," the PC?s press release said. "Inefficient and narrow liberalism is surprisingly inspiring a part of progressive forces who advocate for so-called "modern solutions" which have proven to be regressive: privileges of a minority over a majority, an absolute believing into free trade that undermines our democracies, social rights and environment, and a cult towards productivism. The combined forces of this blindness and fallacy are threatening the existence of the idea of Europe fuelling also far-right forces all over the continent," it argues..
