European Union leaders have adopted a package of energy and climate policy targets for 2030 that are a far cry from what we need to combat climate change and build a sustainable basis for Europe’s economic future.
25 member states countries have launched a massive police operation aiming to detect, detain and possibly deport thousands of so-called 'irregular' migrants. Monica Frassoni, Co-Chair of the European Green Party, comments, “this is a joint operation by member states, and not supported by the Commission. It sends the wrong message, and is not the priority we should be focusing on."
The co-spokespeople of the Greens and Left for the Future Party, Sevil Turan and Naci Sönmez, call upon all nations, human rights organizations and the political opposition of Turkey to raise their voices against the massacres already committed as well as the continuing threat against the lives of those along the borders of Turkey and throughout the entire region.
