3 ratifications, 2 days, 1 goal: the European Constitution!
The goal of ratifying the European Constitution has moved a lot closer over
the last 2 days with ratifications in 3 countries - Germany, Austria and
"There's a real momentum to the ratification process now," stated Jon Worth,
President of the Young European Federalists (JEF-Europe).
"The smooth progress of the Constitution through these parliamentary
ratifications should act as a positive symbol for the referendums to come."
"The ratification in Germany at this time is especially important - European
integration started as a means to prevent conflict between Germany and
France, and the European Constitution is the way to really cement that."
JEF-Europe is a partner organisation in the YES Campaign that has been
organising activities today in front of the Bundestag, and will tomorrow
take to the streets in Strasbourg and at the weekend in Paris.
"By bringing together young people from across Europe, we have started to
show that this Constitution really matters to young people who are the ones
who benefit most from what the EU has to offer," continued Jon Worth.
