Political Platform & Policy Papers
Below you can find the FYEG policy papers, the political platform being the most important one. All policy papers are all adopted by our General Assebly, starting in 2008.
2015 Resolution: How to End the Crisis
Ever since 2008, the world economy has been shattered by aftershocks of the mortgage crisis in the US. The crisis made its way across the Atlantic and throughout the world taking the form of a banking crisis in the European Union. The Heads of EU States swiftly bailed out the banks with public money turning the banking crisis into a debt crisis. The eurozone, an elliptic system of monetary union lacking a common economic policy was the first to show symptoms of this failed political attempt to avoid an implosion. The crisis has shown how tightly interconnected and interdependent our economies really are, as well as the weak spots of our Union.PDF
2015 Resolution: Freedom for the Western Sahara
As Greens we have always supported the anti-colonialist struggles of those who have been under the control of often European countries. Even today, colonialism is still visible on the maps. The Western-Sahara, under Moroccan occupation, is one of these cases, whose liberation has been demanded on countless occasions by the UN Special Committee on Decolonisation. We the Greens in Europe demand the freedom of Western-Sahara and an end to this case of colonialism just outside our borders.PDF
2015 Resolution: Building Bridges
FYEG believes that freedom of movement is a human right, migration is not a crime and no human is illegal. We strive for the complete abolition of borders and the unquestionable right for everyone to choose a place of residence and of work.PDF
2015 Resolution: A Europe that saves lives
The same scenario repeats over and over again: Boats filled with refugees trying to reach Europe, yet drowning, unidentified, in the Mediterranean instead. The European strategy has been one of indifference and cruel cynicism for all too long. We are ashamed of Europe that lets people drown at its shores in order to prevent others from coming. We are ashamed of European leaders for whom more than 20.000 dead in last 15 years were not enough to take the necessary actions to finally protect lives of refugees and migrants at High Seas. Europe cannot and must not let people die at its doorsteps. A Europe that leaves people dying at its shores is not the Europe we want and not the Europe we need and we can live in.PDF
2015 Project Outline: Olive Tree Branch
The last General Assembly (Strasbourg, July 2014) voted the resolution Olive Tree Branch, mandating FYEG to promote training and further discussion between all its structures on the issue of the situation in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories. To take this forward taking into account the range of positions existing within the Federation, the EC has put together the attached project outline proposal.PDF
