EP2014 candidates supporting 'New Deal for Europe' citizens' initiative

PRESS RELEASE.

The next European election will be very important for the future of the European citizens.

The austerity policies, necessary for redressing public finances, did not help Europe to get out of the crisis, have taken a heavy toll on the objectives of sustainable development and employment, and have been decided without involving the European Parliament and the citizens in devising them.

The promoters of the European Citizens Initiative “New Deal for Europe” published an open call for European candidates in the European elections of May 25th to commit themselves to support the ECI, and in particular to pursue the following objectives:

• a EU special program of public investments for the production and financing of European public goods (renewable energy, research and innovation, infrastructural networks, ecological agriculture, protection of the environment and cultural heritage);                               

• a special European Solidarity Fund to create new jobs, especially for young people;               

• increasing the own resources of the European budget through a financial transactions tax and a carbon tax.

In a week time since the promotion of the appeal more than one hundred statements of support have been sent to the ECI's promoters.

In the same time the promoters sent the "Manifesto for sustainable development and employment" supporting the ECI New Deal 4 Europe to all the candidates to the Presidency of the European Commission. José Bové, Ska Keller, Alexis Tsipras, Guy Verhofstadt have subscribed the manifesto and signed the ECI. Martin Schulz didn't sign it but he strongly supports the proposals of the initiative. Claude Juncker didn't reply.

The campaign for the ECI "New deal 4 Europe" will continue after the European elections: one million of signatures has to be collected  in at least seven countries in order to receive the attention of the European Commission.

The European citizens can subscribe the initiative online through the campaign's website at www.newdeal4europe.eu
