The European Greens launched a new petition on their platform for citizen engagement -Tilt! (https://www.tilt.green/coronabonds) - asking the Eurogroup to urgently introduce coronabonds issued by the European Union, in order to finance a common EU response to the crisis.
Evelyne Huyetbroeck and Thomas Waitz, co-chairs of the European Green Party, comment:
“We believe EU leaders currently have a once-in-a-generation responsibility to demonstrate concretely, that solidarity is indeed at the heart of the European project. A mutual debt instrument such as coronabonds could be a make-or-break moment for the future of Europe. Coronabonds not only answer a growing demand for solidarity by European citizens, they are also the embodiment of the European solidarity we need to overcome this crisis.”
