“United for a left alternative in Europe”
We refer to the values and traditions of socialism, communism and the labour movement, of feminism, the feminist movement and gender equality, of the environmental movement and sustainable development, of peace and international solidarity, of human rights, humanism and antifascism, of progressive and liberal thinking, both nationally and internationally”. Manifesto of the Party of the European Left, 2004
How can we reaffirm even more in a stronger way these traditions and values in the current European situation and also worldwide? How can we promote another way of doing politics starting from the people and not the profit?
