I am really pleased that the Italian European Federalist Movement, together with other civil society organisations and the most important trade unions, decided to use the European Citizens’ Initiative, an extraordinary instrument of participation and democracy for the Europe of the XXI century.
The topic that you chose to tackle, together with other European organisations, is of fundamental importance for our future. Since already a couple of years the Parliament demands to complement the policies of financial discipline with measures for growth and employment. The “European special plan for sustainable development” that you propose is completely in line with the objectives and the initiatives supported by the Parliament.
Therefore I cannot help but express my support for your initiative, and wish you all the best for the collection of signatures.- Martin Schulz -
