Progressives,for a UNITED SOCIAL EUROPE!

Labor conditions are topics as old as history, always evolving and always in need for improvements. When we are talking on labor rights, we just don’t think on a group of people who are asking better conditions. It is our duty as a society, as politicians, to lead to better policies. When we are thinking of workers, we need to go through their struggle and their efforts to make a living, we need to see that the corporates can give more of their share, for a fair and better living of those who have less opportunities. When we think of workers, we should all and foremost see if those salaries are enough for them to make a better living or it is just a means to survive. We need to go through the struggle that workers have to go to their workplace, the conditions that the workers have at the work place. We have to reach their struggles and see if we are sending back home individuals who are not afraid of losing their jobs and are not affected psychologically by different factors. We as progressives, when we work and think every day about our future policies hold always in our minds, that fairer labor conditions, our solidarity with workers and our focus on social rights means better societies as well, happier and safer families, happier individuals and as a result more social security and secure societies. These are the things we are fighting for! We cannot go to better conditions of society, if we don’t put an effort on the above mentioned…

A particularity of the European integration project, kickstarted in the 1950s is that, unlike any other project before this, at its core does not have a shared political or ethnic identity, but rather shared values. While the union of the USA was started out of a shared ethnic and political history, the European Union started as a union of values. European countries decided to get close together on the basis of the same values we all share. With time, the European model differentiated itself from the American one: universal healthcare, gun control, accessible education also at the university level are only some of the differences. These were all initiated by the deep belief in social equality and other social values that constituted the basis of the social-democratic movement around Europe. Nowadays these are so deeply rooted in our system and culture that no political party would attempt to undermine them. Nevertheless the basis that united the European countries is now being lost and being forgotten. This is contributing to create a crisis in the union. Only going back to our uniting values will help the EU to overcome this moment of crisis. Only if we decide to build even more the United Social Europe will we be able to prosper again and overcome this dire period. The United Social Europe can only start after the Social-Democratic movement will restate and truly coordinate itself at the European level rather than the National one. It is more and more necessary to show a united face and to state again what are the values of the movement that, due to the turbulent political climate, are being lost of sight. Starting the renewed social-democratic movement that at its core does not have only social justice and equality, but also transparency and Europe will be the basis for a new spring of social-democracy and for the renewal of the United Social Europe project that, for too long, has been decaying. It is time to bring clarity on Social-Democracy and what being a European Social-Democrat is, it is time for transparency and clarity, fundamental more than ever to have a bright future.
