Are You an EU Citizen Living in Berlin?
You Have the Right to Vote Here in the EU Elections
The next elections for the European Parliament mark a crossroads for our political future.
After years of economic austerity, the EU we live in is in a state of political crisis. Neoliberal policies have been pushed through by European institutions in all membership countries under the leadership of the Merkel government in Germany. In all of Europe, this has resulted in rising poverty levels, unemployment and economic insecurity.
These policies have also created a fertile ground for nationalism and xenophobia. From the center to the periphery of Europe, right-wing parties have grown, trying to turn migrants into scapegoats for our social hardship. All the while, thousands of people die at European borders every year, fleeing war and economic suffering that our own governments are partially responsible for. But right-wing parties offer no alternative to the present governments and will only continue the politics of social inequality.
And while we suffer record heatwaves as a dire warning of our looming climate crisis, neither centrer nor right offer any real path forward. We need drastic changes to our ecological footprint, ending coal production in all of Europe by 2035 and investing in public transport. We need a common answer to the ecological question, not nationalist isolation.
That is why at the next election, all European voices must be heard, especially those forced to migrate because of economic deprivation. A strong left vote in the EU elections will be a voice for a different Europe. We need to raise the minimum wage in all of Europe, fight for social security beyond poverty levels and create affordable housing everywhere.
We are facing important political choices. Either the EU will start anew – or we will see the rise of authoritarianism. Only DIE LINKE offers an alternative vision for a peaceful and ecological Europe built on solidarity, democracy and social justice. We cannot be divided – let us fight for our future together.
Vote DIE LINKE on 26th of May.
