I stand for a better Europe; for a European Union committed to social and economic justice, environmental sustainability and citizen-led democracy.

Europe in Crisis

This crisis of European democracy urgently needs effective citizens' engagement across our continent.

We want to help citizens all over Europe to fight for a sustainable, just and democratic Europe, a Europe that values the human rights of every human being, whether a citizen of the EU or not. A Europe that takes seriously the original ideas and values of a Europe committed to peace and global solidarity.

While we disagree with many current EU policies, we believe that the EU is necessary for sustainable, just and democratic policies in many areas. However, our emphasis is not on celebrating the Union because of its theoretical merits but on addressing the very practical problems EU policies cause.

We will organise citizens’ campaigns against bad decisions on the European level, no matter whether they are caused by member states, commission or parliament, and we will fight for positive change in line with our values.

Paradoxically, exactly through fierce criticism of specific policies and through addressing the European institutions directly, we affirm the importance and legitimacy of decision making on the European level.

Our campaigns will not be about a 'Yes' or 'No' to the EU. They will be about a vision for a better Europe.

Fundamentally, we believe in putting more power in the hands of the people and less in the hands of corporations and special interest groups, and we will run campaigns that further these values.

Next step - spread the word

Thank you for joining the movement for a better Europe.

Do you know anyone else who is frustrated with the status quo and wants change for the better? Why not send them a message inviting them to join our movement?
