EL/Transform! event with Alexis Tsipras and Gregor Gysi in Rome
‘A Europe for the People and by the People’
A broad coalition of social movements, trade unions, social and political actors and organizations is committed to build up together, from 23 to 25 March in Rome a huge European mobilization, when the EU leaders will gather to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Rome.
The Party of the European Left deems that it is very important that the political and social space we are building in Europe against the neo-liberal policies of the European People's Party and Social Democracy forces, is being crossed, shaken and oriented by the women's movement.
We celebrate March 8th 2017 in a historical and political context full of difficulties for women throughout Europe. In this context the growth of far right and populism in the Western world as a result of the reactionary policies of most European governments, exerts a negative influence on our struggle for equality.
“There's a valley in Spain called Jarama
It's a place that we all know so well
It was there that we fought against the Fascists
We saw a peaceful valley turn to hell”
(Jarama Valley song, in the Spanish Civil War)
