One for all and all for one!
The European Federalist Party launched an initiative to bring the European citizens closer.
Many things have troubled Europe over time, from the early tribal settlements to the formation of the greatest empires of the world and from the cultural renaissance to the world wars, our old continent has seen it all. But the level of stability, economic growth, peace, tolerance and understanding there is today is a premiere for us. However, the European Union and the European dream are in danger of falling apart, largely because of the financial crisis that hit the international banking system. As everyone knows, Greece is one of the worst affected European states, with huge debts and with the budget deficits growing. The EU is thus placed in a delicate situation, the governments of other member countries being pushed to act as a team now more than ever before. It is a crucial time and, also, a test to pass for the long term survival of the union. In supporting the idea of solidarity and stability, the European Federalist Party launched a campaign called "We are all Greeks" in order to bring Europeans closer at this turning point we face these days. The initiative is simple but with great significance: Basically, citizens from different European countries are called upon to take pictures of themselves in their towns holding the EU and Greek flags and then to post them on the facebook page specifically created for this cause - www.facebook.com/WeareallGreeksandEuropeans. How will people react to it and how is this going to influence the upcoming events remains to be seen. One thing is certain however, at the end, the result of this political-economic crisis we face can be either a more united and stronger Europe than it has ever been, or a divided Europe, plagued by the same prejudices and problems that have lasted for centuries; And moreover, we have the issues of the the 21st century - primarily the global economic competition which is becoming so fierce that no European country has the necessary resources and capacities to handle it alone.
