  • Walter Baier, coordinator of the transform! europe, discusses the significance of the upcoming European elections this May and why we should support the Left. 

    What’s at stake is whether neoliberal austerity will continue or whether Europe will transition to sustainable development, with a strong welfare state and vested social rights, as proposed by the Left.

    According to Baier, the nomination of Alexis Tsipras for President of the European Commission has strong symbolic and political value, and symbolizes the unity and resolve of the European Left to implement a credible and viable alternative strategy for Europe.
