This front will give to social, political, cultural and intellectual forces in our continent the opportunity to create a strong left wing alternative in Europe.   
             

Chers camarades,
Chers amis,
Monsieur le Vice-President de Bolivie,
Mesdames et Messieurs les invités,

Je voudrais commencer par vous dire la fierté et le bonheur que j'ai, à ouvrir la discussion générale de notre 4e congrès, ici à Madrid.

Nous sommes ici, comme l'a dit le Vice-President de Bolivie, « l'espoir » et la vie, dans une « Europe apathique et fatiguée » du néolibéralisme.

Nous sommes fiers d'être de ce côté là, du côté des peuples qui résistent, de ceux qui font battre le cœur de nos sociétés, de ceux qui feront le futur de l'Europe.

Comrades and Friends,

I am not here to give you a conventional speech.
Because we don’t live at conventional times.
I am here, among you, to make a case for change.
I am here, along with you, to remind the peoples of Europe.
That Europe is at a critical crossroads.
