brussels labour sister parties event

Sister party event on election year 2017 – 10 February 18h30, Brussels

Organised by Brussels Labour and the Sister Parties
INVITATION

175 million Europeans will go to the polls in 2017 to elect a new parliament and a new government in i.a. The Netherlands, France, Czech Republic and Germany. In all those countries progressive parties are currently ruling parties.

The issues at stake are high: populism is on the rise across Europe. Fake news and fake solutions with xenophobic and nationalistic slogans are undermining democratic values. Europe integration project is facing a huge challenge. The new governments will define the i.a. EU’s stance on Brexit, visions for society and economy, alternative to an isolationist and exclusive society proposed by right-wing populist movements.

– What will be left from the left if 2017 will mean a radical shift to the right in the EU?

A drink will be served.
