We are Charlie

“Je suis Charlie” – I am Charlie – is a message that has become hugely popular over the last days because it expresses in a few words the solidarity, but also the indignation and defiance, over the brutal attack on Charlie Hebdo. 12 people lost their lives, cowardly murdered for only one reason:  because a satirical magazine dared to voice a different perspective of the world. They were not revolutionaries – they were cartoonists, journalists, people whose only weapon was their sense of humour.

PES.EU - new because of you!


With 36 days, dear friends, until the European election, I would like to welcome you to our brand new website. With our Common Candidate for Commission President, Martin Schulz (www.martin-schulz.eu ), these European elections are very different. And I am very proud to say that with our new website things are also very different. For 6 months now, you, the PES family of party activists and volunteers, have, under the direction of our Member Partie, been working incredibly hard, all across Europe, to ‘knock the vote’ for Martin. You have put thousands of hours of volunteer work in and set up networks all across the continent to help us win these elections. This website is designed to highlight and register your great efforts.

Barroso's state of the union speech misses the mark


It is always frustrating to see a political speech that misses the mark. Last Wednesday's (11 September) 'State of the union' speech by Barroso was one such occasion. Rather than give a clear outline of the challenges currently before the European Union, Barroso resorted to a shopping list of policy initiatives that occurred during his time in charge of the commission.

From May 1863 Leipzig to May 2013 Sofia, the value of progressive democracy

History shows us that election day always has consequences. This is a fundamental principle of progressive democracy, even if the outcome is neither progressive nor democratic. In case of my own country, Bulgaria, the chaotic, massively manipulated general election on May 12 has proven to be part of the legacy of the conservative GERB party. This is and always will be a legacy of democratic abuse, of isolation and political neglect. This is also the reason why, despite evidences of illegally printed ballots and widespread corruption, the official numbers still show that two-thirds of the electorate voted against GERB. Now, the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) will focus to engage in dialogue with all members of society with the ultimate goal of bringing this destructive legacy to an end.
