An inventory of EP candidates: The way to a Europe for the people…or?

Should there be enough political honesty, creativity and dialogue, the EU might yet make a turn towards building a Europe-wide democratic public sphere, a sustainable development model, job security and decent employment, democratic governance of common goods and an uncompromising protection of human rights – this is the attitude of the members of the Platform 112 civil society coalition.

Therefore, in order to keep the public informed on the attitudes of the Croatian candidates for the EP, Platform 112 has staged a debate of the candidates in the Journalists’ Home in Zagreb, entitled A Different Europe is Possible! about "Pre-election activist inventory for the EU by 2020.".

Social Europe – strategic investment, not cost!

„Unlike the American Dream, the European Dream was a guarantee that you will not fall through the safety net and end up existentially endangered, even if you were not the best. Today, the European Dream is endangered by austerity measures and policies based on the assumption that investing in people is an expenditure we cannot afford. However, a different Europe is possible and we shouldn't be trying to humanize capitalism, but instead striving for a new social contract based on sustainability. Unless it is social in nature, EUrope is pointless.”

These were the messages sent out at the thematic debate on the prospects of renewing the European social model in the upcoming term of the European Parliament and European Commission, organized at the eve of the European elections by GONG and the Union of Autonomous Trade Unions of Croatia (UATUC), in cooperation with the Centre for Peace Studies and Group 22.

The left is losing at the expense of the right, is there anyone "awake"?

The biggest problem of today’s European Union is that the citizens do not trust institutions, both at the European and the national level. But there is a solution in the form of strong pressure from the outside and radical changes within institutions , concluded Dr. sc. Jordi Vaquer, director of the Open Society Initiative for Europe, at the lecture entitled "The crisis of European democracies: resistance, reform, disintegration or regression", which was held last week at the Faculty of Political Sciences, University of Zagreb.
