Manuel Santoro, national secretary
I consider the appointment of the coming Marseille Forum of the European progressive forces organized by the Party of the European Left the first step for a political and programmatic convergence that will allow us to strengthen a shared political path, not only in Europe, but also in every European nation. Such common political journey will certainly allow the organizations participating to the Forum to get closer and work together for a shared political platform for future appointments and elections.
In Marseille we will participate to the first Forum, the first appointment, and our goal will be to make it grow in time and in space, since it will be the Forum our only chance to help the left in Europe, to gain strength and focus for the coming political battles. The participants to the Forum will grow in number through time and we have to work to that end. More people and organizations we will be part of this path in the future.
In this manner the European Left will become stronger and the left in each nation will reach its political goals: become politically relevant.
We all share a common ground. A ground defined by the will to be part of the Forum. A ground defined by the political focus traced by the Party of the European Left. Thus, being participants of this great event defines already a link between us, construct a bridge to work together for the future of future generations. The Forum is the glue that will help us to work together and make the left stronger, in Europe and in our nations.
