Throughout the whole day economists, sociologists, trade unionists, politicians of the Party of the European Left (EL) and members of social movements of over 20 different countries analyse the causes and consequences of the policy of austerity and the pressure that the payment of debt is causing on the peoples of Europe. The president of the EL, Pierre Laurent, called this big event "an act of democratic construction" which will open an alternative debate with real solutions. He talked about how to face the debt problem in Europe and "how restructuring it to lighten it".
"Together we can put an end to debt and austerity problems in Europe" is the title of the conference that will be held by the Party of the European Left (EL) and Transform! Europe, its political foundation, on April 10, 2014 in Brussels.

One million and nine hundred thousand Europeans have supported the European Citizens' Initiative which claims the "implementation of the human right to water and sanitation in the European legislation". This great citizen mobilization that must lead to action !
The right to water and sanitation is a fundamental human right, vital, which should be guaranteed to everyone within public services and not subject to market rules in Europe and around the world. This is not a commercial product but a public good of humanity.
