PARTITO DELLA SINISTRA EUROPEA: per una lista di sinistra alle elezioni europee. Il tempo è ora!

PARTITO DELLA SINISTRA EUROPEA: Per una lista di sinistra alle elezioni europee Il tempo è ora!

Dichiarazione del vicepresidente della Partito della sinistra europea, Paolo Ferrero:

Le organizzazioni italiane che fanno riferimento al Partito della Sinistra Europea – Rifondazione Comunista, Sinistra Italiana, L’altra Europa, Partito del Sud, Convergenza Socialista, Transform! Italia – hanno deciso di mettersi a disposizione per la presentazione di una lista della sinistra alle prossime elezioni europee.

In questi giorni tale percorso ha fatto decisi passi in avanti, cercando il coinvolgimento di altre forze che si muovono sul terreno dell’alternativa, con l’obiettivo di presentare a breve il logo e il nome della lista che correrà alle europee.

La posta in gioco è molto alta. C’è il rischio che la lunga stagione dell’austerità e delle politiche neoliberiste favorisca l’aumento della presenza nelle istituzioni comunitarie delle destre nazionaliste e xenofobe. Per questo occorre contrastare sia il neoliberismo che il nazionalismo e costruire in Italia e in Europa un terzo polo che metta al centro i diritti delle donne e degli uomini – di tutte le donne e gli uomini – a partire da quelli del e nel lavoro, la salvaguardia della natura, la cooperazione tra i popoli e la pace.

Al fine di realizzare questa confluenza tra esperienze sociali, politiche e culturali, tra soggetti politici diversi italiani ed europei, abbiamo aperto un confronto con le donne e gli uomini, i partiti le associazioni e i movimenti che si riconoscono in questo orizzonte politico di alternativa. Il successo della lista sarà strettamente legato al protagonismo che questi soggetti esprimeranno perché l’unica strada per rovesciare la situazione attuale, come ci insegna il movimento delle donne, è il protagonismo di massa.

Il Partito della Sinistra Europea, segue con attenzione e speranza il cammino intrapreso in Italia.

Roma, 8 marzo 2019

Sulla lista unitaria per le elezioni europee

La Segreteria nazionale di Convergenza Socialista evidenzia il lavoro fatto nelle ultime settimane per la presentazione della lista unitaria per le prossime elezioni europee. Lista che coinvolge i soggetti politici aderenti al Partito della Sinistra Europea con l’obiettivo di allargarne il perimetro ai soggetti politici, ai movimenti e alle singole individualità interessate alla prospettiva politica che tale lista si pone.

 

Convergenza Socialista, membro del Partito della Sinistra Europea con lo status di “cooperazione rafforzata”, registra la fase positiva nella discussione tra le parti per la presentazione della lista unitaria e porterà il proprio contributo per la definizione del profilo politico-programmatico, in particolare modo sul terreno del lavoro, dell’ambiente e della democratizzazione dell’Europa.

Manifesto for the European feminist 8 March 2019 strike

This coming 8 March we want to extend our alliances among women in order to defend the rights we have won. It was the union of many women throughout the world which won great victories for all of us and brought us the rights that we have today. Before our time there has been a long history of women activists, suffragettes and trade union members. However, we know that it’s still not enough: there is still a lot to do and we have to keep up the struggle.

EUROPE MUST BE ON ALERT AND CALLED UP!

Calling every European citizen!

Let’s recover our future
For a permanent collaboration and a convergent action between leftist, green and progressive forces in Europe

Millions of Europeans and Europeans have suffered and still suffer the attacks of a predatory capital which is promoting labour, social, economic and institutional changes whose aim is to demolish historical achievements of the working class and the popular strata in order to impose an authoritarian, precarious, deregulated society, without labour, social and citizen’s rights.

Festa 1 Maggio

Convergenza Socialista è un partito politico socialista aderente al ‘Forum europeo delle forze progressiste’ (Partito della Sinistra Europea)

1st May, the International Workers Day, is not just a day to remember the past century’s achievements of the worker’s movement. More than 130 years after the workers’ revolt in Chicago, the realization of labour rights and social justice remains at the heart of our struggle and is a contemporary and urgent concerns.

EUROPEAN FORUM: our vision of Europe

Convergenza Socialista believes that it is very important to anticipate the duo Macron-Merkel and their plan to “imagine” a new vision for the European Union. We believe that the Forum could be the right setting to work towards an alternative idea of Europe.

If we can write down a political proposal within the Forum framework, the outcome could be a platform to be used for the European election in 2019.

In our opinion there are different ways to go forward in the direction above highlighted:

1)      An alternative, simple but exhaustive, European Treaty could be formalized and approved by the Forum which does in fact overwrites the spirit of the treaties now in place. This approach could be simple to read and to understand by the public since explained Article by Article. 

2)      Another approach could be to write down a political document containing the major points, the soul, of what an alternative Europe, their rules, etc, could be. Certainly less detailed with respect to the first option but nevertheless effective.

TOWARDS THE SECOND EUROPEAN FORUM OF THE PROGRESSIVE FORCES

Message from our secretary to the comrades – towards the second European Forum of the Progressive Forces in Spain

Dear comrades,

I believe that the first European Forum of the Progressive Forces in Marseille was very good, a very good first step in the right direction.

I believe that the ultimate goal of the Forum and of the European Left should be to aggregate around a precise political and programmatic platform all forces available in Europe to fight liberal and right wing forces. We should channel all our forces towards a common political goal. I believe we would need more politics, not less, to achieve our goals.

It is also very important to avoid dispersion of forces due to an uncertain political platform. I believe the European Left should lead the effort for the definition of a precise common ground.

Naturally, if we work well in the future then the Forum could grow enormously. It has indeed great potentials and the second appointment in Spain next November is an opportunity we cannot miss out.

Socialist greetings from Italy!

Manuel Santoro
National Secretary of Convergenza Socialista

THE IMPORTANCE OF MARSEILLE FORUM

Manuel Santoro, national secretary

I consider the appointment of the coming Marseille Forum of the European progressive forces organized by the Party of the European Left the first step for a political and programmatic convergence that will allow us to strengthen a shared political path, not only in Europe, but also in every European nation. Such common political journey will certainly allow the organizations participating to the Forum to get closer and work together for a shared political platform for future appointments and elections.

In Marseille we will participate to the first Forum, the first appointment, and our goal will be to make it grow in time and in space, since it will be the Forum our only chance to help the left in Europe, to gain strength and focus for the coming political battles. The participants to the Forum will grow in number through time and we have to work to that end. More people and organizations we will be part of this path in the future.

In this manner the European Left will become stronger and the left in each nation will reach its political goals: become politically relevant.

We all share a common ground. A ground defined by the will to be part of the Forum. A ground defined by the political focus traced by the Party of the European Left. Thus, being participants of this great event defines already a link between us, construct a bridge to work together for the future of future generations. The Forum is the glue that will help us to work together and make the left stronger, in Europe and in our nations.

EUROPE MUST CHANGE! Call for a European Forum of Progressive Forces

Convergenza Socialista, signatory of the Call!

Call for a European Forum of Progressive Forces

The European Union is going through a long-lasting crisis, an existential crisis. All the peoples of Europe, whether or not they are members of the Union, suffer from austerity policies and terrible inequalities. Peace and climate are threatened.

We have had enough of this antisocial, authoritarian, greedy and selfish Europe. We do not accept that the only alternative would be competition between the populist, xenophobic and extreme right-wing nationalist forces separating European peoples, and the forces which propose a strengthening of the austeritarian neoliberal policies resulting from the treaties. This gear prepares or feeds an authoritarian trend in many countries of the Union, with the war of everybody against everybody as the only future.
