European Parliament stands up for the rule of law and future generations

23.07.2020

MFF

Countries that have chosen frugality over solidarity do so at the expense of European unity. It is now up to the European Parliament to stand up for the rule of law and to invest in future generations", says Philippe Lamberts, co-President of the Greens/EFA group in the European Parliament.
