Left resistance against the neoliberal agenda of Macron, in order to fight back Le Pen on a sustained basis

On occasion of the results of the presidential elections in France, Gregor Gysi, President of the European Left, declares:

The citizens of France have, fortunately, prevented with a large majority that Le Pen, exponent of the far-right and a racist, is able to move into Élysée Palace. Emmanuel Macron is the new president of the French state.

He has announced a neoliberal policy, which has to meet strong-willed resistance, in order to prevent further social cuts in both France and all over Europe. An intensification of neoliberal policy would strengthen the far-right and endanger the European Union.

The Left is determined to resolute resistance against this – in France, in Germany, and all over Europe.
