EU-Japan Agreement

Preliminary Review on behalf of the Green/EFA Trade Working Group

The EU-Japan deal will be publicly presented as a symbol of an open, liberal trade regime, in contrast with the protectionist measures taking place in the US and elsewhere. The attack on the rules-based international trading system makes it all the more important for the EU to embed its’ values and live up to its commitments for sustainability and ecological responsibility in the agreements it signs. Based on the following analysis, we conclude that the EU-Japan agreement is another missed opportunity to fulfil this often-cited mantra.

Quote from Ska Keller on the Catalan prisoners

Catalonia

"We were lucky to meet some of the people who are imprisoned here today. I am happy to see that they are in good spirits, they are optimistic. This whole idea that they should be put on trial for rebellion and sedition does not hold any ground. I would call on the General prosecutor to drop at least those charges. It will be a trial, they will defend themselves but why spend so much time in prison before there is even a trial?"

State of the European Union

If Europe loses its democracy it will lose itself. Europe has promised democracy, the rule of law and civil liberties to all its citizens. It is dangerous for Europe that political leaders such as Viktor Orbán in Hungary are now increasingly undermining this promise

Debate on the Future of the European Union with Greek Prime Minister

In Greece, Europe broke one of its fundamental promises, to bring prosperity to its citizens. Instead it brought poverty. Europe didn’t find a solution based on solidarity and solidity. Our lesson from this needs to be that we finally create a social union. So far we have only vague declarations on how nice social policies would be, but that’s not enough
