We will put democracy at the heart of the European Union, taking power away from unelected officials, corporate lobbyists, and the criminal classes and giving it back to the peoples of Europe.
We will enforce European residents’ rights to equality, democracy, and reproductive autonomy, safeguarding these freedoms from all authorities who are fighting to take them away.
We will decentralize decision-making in the European Union, empowering citizens and their communities to control how they are governed at the local, national, and European levels.
We will put an end to the brutal policy of austerity, providing a comprehensive plan to address the crises of public debt, private debt, trade imbalance, and regional inequality in the Eurozone.
The threat of climate demands an ambitious and urgent shift in how we produce and consume. We will lead Europe’s rapid ecological transition, including an investment of €500 billion each year in green infrastructure and industry.
We will fight for worker power. The share of wealth held by workers is in decline, and the share held by the top 1 percent continues to climb. Our policy programme will enable all people to share the wealth that we collectively produce.
Far too many people in Europe suffer from housing and food insecurity. We are proposing new European legislation to guarantee basic goods to every European resident, including health, housing, and clean water.
We believe that all workers — regardless of age, gender, industry, or geography — are entitled to decent working conditions. We will reinforce worker rights by raising the standard for wages and benefits across Europe, and monitoring its implementation.
We will work so that each European country — inside or outside the EU — guarantee a job to residents in their own community at the living wage that contributes to the community and liberates Europeans from the pressure to migrate to other cities or countries.
We will end ‘Fortress Europe,’ welcoming new arrivals to our continent, creating wide avenues for legal migration, ending the export of migration control to foreign countries, and preventing deportation to unsafe territories.
We believe in a world order that serves the interests of all workers against those of the global oligarchy. We will replace free trade with “just” trade, end tax havens for the rich, and hold transnational corporations accountable for their crimes.
Borders cannot undermine our common humanity. We are proposing policies to create a shared sense of community around the world, addressing historical injustices and bringing people of all countries together around common history.
