European Greene Party Statement
25 October 2021
The European Greens express their conviction in a green future for Serbia. We are very inspired by the recent events and the rise of the voice of citizens, civil society, and political actors against the continuous depletion on nature and natural resources, against the further demolition of democratic institutions and processes.
We stand with everyone who is ready to raise their voice against injustice, corruption and against actions that are endangering a future free of oppression, discrimination, climate change and poverty. We recognize the initiatives Ne Davimo Belgrade, Zajedno za Srbiju and Action platform as actors whose words, actions and people are working hard and investing in a green future of Serbia.
We also applaud and offer our support to citizens and all civil society rising against the current regime's attacks on nature and biodiversity, a regime that is constantly violating basic democratic principles and is using a populist rhetoric to divide and regress society.
We acknowledge recent reports about fake green actors using the visual identity of the European Greens and other European Green parties but are convinced that citizens will recognize legitimate Green actors themselves, actions speak louder than the populism of opportunist actors.
While not yet official members of the European Green Party, Ne Davimo Belgrade, Zajedno za Srbiju and Action platform are in close cooperation with us pending their membership application. In our view they are currently the only internationally recognised Green contact in Serbia and natural partners for Green parties across Europe.
