  4. 1) Long live the Brexit!

    Declaration of the European Anti-Euro Co-ordination

    The European Union aims only at suppressing nations’ sovereignty in order to make neoliberal policies permanent. These policies’ purpose is to favor the richest by crushing the poorest. The Brexit victory is a blow to that system which must be dismantled.

    2) Democracy and Popular Sovereignty instead of Neoliberal Integration and a failed Euro-System

    Platform of the Lexit network

    With the implementation of the European single market and the Maastricht Treaty, European integration was established as a neoliberal project for the long run. The Stability- and Growth Pact, the fundamental freedoms of the single market and the European monetary union, among other elements, constituted a framework that has fueled austerity policies, the dismantling of workers’ rights and the welfare state and imposed privatization throughout the EU member states.

  6. An Alternative to the Euro

    Social and Democratic EU Blocked

    The institutional design of the Euro plays a central role in the EU crisis. A reform of the common currency would require taking at least part of the competitive pressure off the southern European countries. Without high wage settlements in Germany, EU-wide coordinated state-investment programs for ecological and social projects and an effective regulation and control of financial markets, this will, however, not happen.

    Some prominent supporters:

    • Prof. Heiner Flassbeck, editor makroskop.eu
    • Inge Höger, MP „Die Linke“
    • Prof. Martin Höpner, Max Planck Institute for the study of societies Cologne
    • Ralf Krämer, union secretary
    • Oskar Lafontaine
    • Prof. Andreas Nölke, political scientist, Goethe university Frankfurt
