This week the leaders of the European Union will meet in Brussels to decide the future of our continent. There are many issues on the table, first of all Brexit. Our message for Theresa May is clear: we want the rights of all citizens to be guaranteed. And we have a message also for the other EU Heads of State and Government: you cannot continue blocking all necessary progress within our Union! We had enough of your "dictatorship of the immediate", there will always be elections in some countries. But the future cannot wait, we need to start building it now. The proposals from the European Parliament and the European Commission on social rights, on a fiscal Union, on migration are clear, so we ask you to finally act and make them a reality.
