Facing Brexit by reforming Europe
In front of 800 people in Britany, the European Democrats reaffirmed last weekend that Europe is not the source of the problems but the solution, three months after the British vote on the exit of the European Union. With one motto: let’s reform Europe!
Speakers from all walks of life, such as former MEDEF leader Laurence Parisot, environmentalist Brice Lalonde, magistrates Giblert Thiel and Philippe Bilger, journalists Bernard Guetta and Alex Taylor or European Parliament negotiator Guy Verhofstadt each explained that, for each of the great challenges we are facing, Europe is the way.
But the mistrust of the citizens is not unfounded and confidence cannot be restored without an active involvement of Europeans, hammered Marielle de Sarnez, the EDP secretary general and vice-president of the MoDem.
Concrete proposals, particularly in favor of a socially economically strong Europe serving great champions of globalization, will have to be put forward by the EDP before the 2019 European elections.
