The General Assembly of EAPN met in Vienna last week.
We call upon all political parties and all candidates for the European Parliamentary Elections to commit to securing a Social and Sustainable Europe, a Europe free of Poverty, characterised by equal rights, opportunities and social cohesion. This means a political commitment to make the “EU Poverty Free” – which should be included in all electoral programmes. This will guarantee the continuation of high-level political commitment to the eradication of poverty. Making Europe Poverty Free is a political choice which recognises citizens’ rights, ensures access to those rights, and reflects the solidarity felt by Europeans.
