The Spinelli Group supports Juncker’s State of the Union Speech and his package of proposals to relaunch the European Union and calls for action to implement it by the next European Parliament elections.
On 25th March 2017, Heads of State and Government will meet in Rome to adopt the "Rome Declaration", supposed to give momentum and direction to the transformations the EU will undergo in the coming years. While Europeans show election after election their attachment to their values of openness and democracy, only an inclusive process, involving the representatives of the European citizens in the European Parliament, will meet their expectations: a Europe for the citizens by the citizens.
An open debate on all options presented by the European Commission is welcome because it highlights what is really at stake today for all Europeans. The Spinelli Group believes that the European Union can’t simply stand still hoping for a better future, nor can it reduce itself to just a single market or, even less, dismantle some of its policies. These options would lead to a weaker Europe less secure in today’s unstable world.
What we need are more democratic and better controlled institutions, an independent budget for the euro area, and an outer circle for those countries reticent about an “ever closer union.”
Jo Leinen. Transnationale Listen: Wie aus 28 nationalen Wahlen eine europäische wird. Entspricht das Verfahren zur Wahl des Europäischen Parlaments noch unseren Erwartungen an eine europäische Demokratie?
A group of over 70 MEPs from different countries and political groups have signed-up to re-launch the parliamentary group of the "Spinelli Group", which held its first meeting yesterday in the European Parliament in Strasbourg.
We would like to invite you to join the Spinelli Group by signing the Manifesto. The Spinelli Group believes that we need another Europe and a more integrated Europe. The current situation does not work and we need to join all our forces on a Group party basis to reach common European solutions. The time for this action is now.

“Let’s redesign Europe” – This will be the theme of Dany Cohn-Bendit’s ‘fresh start’. A fresh start because 2014 will mark the end of an era in which as a MEP, Dany Cohn-Bendit embodied the European dream through his speeches, writings and actions both within and outside the EU institutions.
