Statement on the Future of Europe
Shaping our Future TOGETHER
Europe must help strenghten the north-african nations along the Mediteranean shoreline in order to provide a buffer zone in case Nigeria implodes (a country of 187m people) . In case this happens the millions of migrants seeking shelter in Europe will be staggering. Europe must involve itself militarily or by providing intelligence in order to help Nigeria defeat Boko haram, and also to end tge religious conflicts within this country. The ticking time bomb which is Africa and especially Nigeria is of existential threat to Europe.
The only way we can all prosper in an ever-changing word is that we work together. As our common goal is ultimately our common good, we need to make sure that all continents and all people have access to the basics that they need in order to lead a fulfilled life.
We need to stop regarding Africa as a communion of countries that need our help. We need to look at the continent as a partner, as a future world leader in many respects, as a cradle of youth and development. And this is why we need to stand with Africa and with the African people in their endeavour to make the continent more visible and more engaged at a global level.
The S&Ds in the European Parliament are leading this fight for a fair chance for Africa, for a better future for its youth.
This September, in Brussels, we will be hosting our second edition of the Africa week. Join us and follow our discussions, as we will post more updates throughout the summer break!
Democracy is an ongoing process which can shift a facade or illiberal democracy, etc. to a real democracy and even to a liberal democracy. Democracy is a fair and free opportunity system. Anyone can transform to democracy. Democracy is a given in certain regions, while in others, it must be fought for and even earned. Democracy is the better way of life that when installed within a country contributes to fighting poverty, disease, the lack of education automatically. Democracy is not just having laws, but also knowing they will be there and they will work and they should be respected. Democracy is not just about casting a vote, it’s about choosing your future.
Many European countries facing shortage of unskilled labours. In Poland we are short of almost 175.000 by the end of next year. If such problem exist, then why EU government limit migrant workers coming in? Many factories may close soon giving opportunity for importers to import cheap quality products to meet the demand. When do they wants to change those policies?

Last August, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (US Senate) introduced the “Accountable Capitalism Act”.
The legislation is intended to restore the idea that giant (American) corporations should consider the interests of all major corporate stakeholders ( employees, customers and the community and shareholders), not only shareholders, in company decisions.
The Act provides:
– Very large American corporations must obtain a federal charter as a “United States corporation,” which obligates company directors to consider the interests of all corporate stakeholders;
– The boards of United States corporations must include substantial employee participation (no fewer than 40% of its directors must be selected by the corporation’s employees);
– Sales of company shares by the directors and officers of United States corporations are restricted;
– United States corporations must obtain shareholder and Board approval for all political expenditures;
– A United States corporation that engages in repeated and egregious illegal conduct may have its charter revoked.
The principle of “maximisation of shareholder value” adopted in the 1980s is damaging not only society at large, but corporations the adopt it as well; this due to a too low percentage of profits reinvested in the company to foster its growth. This is true not only in the USA but also in Europe; should we think to introduce a legislation similar to the Accountable Capitalism Act also in Europe?
The question that arises is: What will happen if other powers decides to leave the EU in the future?
What will happen to the European Community and what will happen to European citizens?
It’s not easy for the country to get your citizens accustomed to living in a homonymous block that threatens to collapse …
And then what should the Union do that states do not follow the British model?
First of all, transparency should grow at the level of all institutions, but also of potential candidate countries.
It should occupy the gap left by the UK leaving the attraction of Switzerland or Norway (two countries with a potential for growth in the years to come).
Creating new trade alliances with extra-community states (Asian states such as China, Arab Emirates, etc.).
States that could be markets for European products, etc.
That would be the future of the EU to survive the challenges ahead.
