Meeting with a delegation of Syriza


On 14th January 2014 a meeting took place in Rome between Paolo Acunzo (National Bureau MFE) and Roberto Ceccarelli (Bureau MFE Rome) with a delegation of the Greek Party Syriza, made up of Nikos Pappas (Director of the Bureau) and Argiris Panagopoulos (journalist). The Greek delegation immediately expressed its full support for the objectives set by the European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI) “New Deal 4 Europe: A European Special Plan for Sustainable Development and Employment”, which has been initially promoted by the MFE and, after the constitution of eight national committees in as many EU countries, presented to the European Commission. In addition, the Syriza delegation undertook to make it one of their political priorities in the upcoming campaign for the European elections in Greece and in other European countries. President Tsipras will send a letter in support of the ECI campaign and it was suggested a special public event in these issues should be planned in Italy in the next few months, in which Tsipras could take part personally. Lastly, speaking about the practical aspects, the Syriza delegation said it was willing to publicize the links for the collection of signatures on its web platforms and to relate with the Greek organizing committee to plan public collections of signatures. The Italian delegation expressed its satisfaction for the complete mutual understanding about the matter, thanked the Greek delegation for its helpfulness and informed about ongoing contacts with other movements and political parties in Europe so as to widen and strengthen the coalition for A New Deal 4 Europe. In the end, both delegations agreed that only by rethinking European democracy and working for a European government of the economy will we be able to respond adequately to the present crisis, of which Greece has become a symbol.
