The Spanish MEP Miguel Urbán and Katerina Sergidou, founding member of Syriza, will analyse the current situation in the European Union and will consider possible alternative to this model
For many people the current European model doesn’t work. The economic crisis and the dip in living standards of thousands of people have generated dissent and distrust among many of EU institutions, this is especially the case after the Brexit.
In this year’s Social Forum we will address the current situation in Europe with the aid of the MEP Miguel Urbán and the once secretary of the Syriza coordinating committee in Athens and founding member of the group, Katerina Sergidou.
Katerina Sergidou is a founding member of Syriza, which she left in 2015, after having supported the OXI (the day of NO) in Greece until the end.
Miguel Urbán, is spokesperson for DIEM 25, one of the main alternatives that is being proposed for Europe, promoted by Yanis Varoufakis.
In the Social Forum both speakers will analyse the events that led to the Greek OXI, as well as it similarities and differences to the British Brexit and the possible alternatives to the current EU model that are being considered at the moment in different European countries.
