Europe needs ambitious plan of the transition to zero greenhouse gas emissions and transform Europe in the process. Huge investment to industry, infrastructure and agriculture, creating milions of nes jobs and ending era of austherity! We need vision of fairer, greener and more justice Europe which will confront our political, economical and climate crises.
People feel left behind by EU, by politicians and by system. We have to change it. We have to represent people and fight for them. There is big diference between East and West, especially our Visegrad countries are having problems right now and EU Can not give up on them! We have to build bridges and communicate better together. Even after that long time the differences are still here, people are thinking different, people vote different and we have to understand that. We need strong social europe which will hepl us to fight thise differences, to put people together and support each other. We need one Europe with one social pillar which will work for every one. We have to close gaps between people, wages, benefits and together fight inequalitites.
We need the European Union which will at the first place work for people. Promoting social policies aimed at reducing unemployment in all member states and reducing the number of people at risk of poverty. A Union, which will regulate the market and fight right-wing neo-liberal policies. Because the EU must be here for its citizens, not for the multinational corporations, banks or billionaires. Globalization in Europe divides society into winners and losers, and we have to change it! Everyone must benefit from globalization. We need a system where people feel safe and have control over their lives. All European institutions are currently governed by right-wing politicians and I believe that is the conflict of interests. And Social democracy must stand for the interests of the people in Europe. We must represent them and protect their rights.
People are afraid of losing control of their lives and they feel unrepresented in politics, especially on EU level. They are losers of the globalization and thanks to that, it is easy to convince them of nationalism, xenophobia and protectionism. It is task of Social Democracy to help them, they are our voters and supporters. And the S&D Group has to Go where they live and speak with them. We have to go to small regions, to the factories, schools and small cities. We have show people positive vision of our policy, our values and programs. We have to show them the good side of globalization, good side of the EU and good side of the cooperation. Things which effect their daily lives and things which are here because of EU and because of S&D policy. We have to answer their questions and stop their fear from globalization, migration, or even Brussels. We as Socialist and social democrats have to show them, that we will protect them and we will fight for their rights. So they stop voting for far-right parties and start to trust us. And we have to do it together, together on EU level, supporting each other and change the current situation.
