Campaigns and Activities
JEF-Europe organises international campaigns in order to raise European awareness and to facilitate the cooperation between sections, to bring the European dimension in local events and to exchange best practices.
In the past year, JEF Europe has been involved major pan-European campaigns, Galaxy Europe in 2006, The YES! Campaign in 2005 and Give Europe a Face! in 2004-2005.
Many activities, debates and street actions have been organised and implemented in the framework of these campaigns, and much more needs to be done!!
I want my flag back!!!
On the 13/14th December the European Council will convene for the official signing of the Reform Treaty! To mark this occasion and raise awareness about the RT and the European Council meeting, JEF Europe proposes to get Jeffers back on the streets in a public street action giving a strong message to European leaders
“ I WANT MY FLAG BACK!!!”.
Although the Reform Treaty does bring institutional advancements for the efficient functioning of the EU, the role of the citizen has been sidelined and the symbols of European unity have been crushed. That, as federalists we cannot accept!
Europe still retains its symbols, but they have been purposefully taken out this Reform Treaty. JEF condemns the lack of leadership of European leaders who keep giving in to eurosceptic voices and fears. We ask that European citizens become central to the construction of Europe and that European symbols that unite our peoples are made visible! Are European leaders so afraid of an anthem and a flag?!!
As Margaret Thatcher demanded her money back in 1979, we now demand our flag back!!!
For those who believe that Europe cannot be united by legal treaties alone, join us on 13th December!
