5 Years of European Left
Blitzlicht aus dem Geburtstagsvideo der EL
IT WAS JUST THE BEGINNING
The Party of the European Left has grown up and become a
significant actor on the political scene", states Lothar Bisky, the
chairman of the European Left.
On 9 May 2004 the Party of the European Left was founded in Rome.
5 years later, the proposals contained in the common electoral platform
exemplify that the European Left can change European politics concretely.
The participation of the European Left, for instance at peaceful
demonstrations against the attack of the welfare state and against NATO,
for instance, show that it is more than an umbrella organisation for its
member parties. A common electoral campaign in the run-up to the elections
to the European Parliament is currently under way. "I am very confident"
says Lothar Bisky "that a large number of deputies from the European Left
will join the GUE/NGL group in the next European Parliament."
