• EP 2019 – The European Left: One Mouth, Many Voices

  • One year before the European Elections, is still not clear how the left and progressive forces will run and campaign. Meantime, we see three different roads, not equally developed, from the left parties throughout Europe. Though May 2019 is not so far, many developments can change the course of the European left during the following months. Political upheavals may turn upside down the various strategies and conv ergences may pop up.

    transform! europe wishes to contribute to a strategy that will unite the left, not only for the sake of the unity, but for the sake of the European people’s interests and the fight against the Far Right that gains more ground with each passing day.
