What’s important is what kind of Europe one believes in and not if one believes in Europe in general
AKEL C.C. Spokesperson Stefanos Stefanou reply to DISY President

What’s important is what kind of Europe one believes in and not if one believes in Europe in general.
We believe in a Europe of democracy, social justice, peace, cooperation and solidarity.
You worship the Europe of austerity, of social and democratic deficits, the Europe of militarization and of double standards policies. This is a reality that exists in Europe, which unfortunately feeds the extreme right. This is the European Union today that is in danger of turning into a Wild West, as Jean-Claude Juncker himself recently said. The neo-liberal Right – to which you belong to – is responsible for this Wild West.
And one other thing. Euroscepticism is a current of the right, not of the left.
