Video of the press conference Weds. 29 May 2013 - with Rebecca Harms and Jürgen Trittin
Between the two EU summits in May and June, prominent politicians from Green parties in Europe held a 'shadow summit' on 29 May in Brussels aimed at formulating alternatives to the conservative and neo-liberal policies of the EU's ruling majority. Rebecca Harms and Jürgen Trittin, leaders of the Green parliamentary groups in Brussels and Berlin respectively, held a press conference to outline the political agenda up to the European elections in May 2014. The Greens want a fresh start in Europe and want a new government in Germany to lead the shift to socially responsible and sustainable EU policies.
