LATEST VIDEO
The State of the Union address is the speech the President of the European Commission delivers before the European Parliament every year in September to “take stock” of the past years achievements, acknowledge future challenges and propose ideas... interesting given that 2020 has been shit.

You asked for questions, President Von der Leyen.
We are here to answer your call 📢 #AskThePresident
We are not #NextGenerationEU. 
We are THIS generation EU.

Here is our #SOTEU address by our Co-Spokesperson Eleanor Morrissey: our vision of a more social, sustainable, welcoming and inclusive Europe  🔥Through a series of Learning Labs on #JustTransition we wish to bring young people together in a 🌐 digital 🔥 brave space for learning to:
 
🌱 explore the concept of a just transition
💬 share struggles faced by youth when moving away from a carbon-intensive society both in rural and urban settings
🤸‍♂️ experience alternative online facilitation methods and tools
🌴 harvest ideas for the upcoming activities in Barcelona and Brussels 

More info: https://fyeg.org/just-transition-learning-labsThe European Union 🇪🇺 should be a project of peace and unity, but the ongoing refugee crisis shows that Europe needs to do more.

On #EuropeDay young greens are standing for:
✊ Solidarity with refugees
✊ Safe passage to Europe
✊ The eradication of borders.

#NooneIsIllegal
#LeaveNooneBehindThe United Kingdom has left the European Union, but we will continue fighting for our social and environmental rights! Together with our Young Greens from England and Wales, Scotland and Ireland we talk about the factors that led to Brexit, the struggles young people face, and how to continue fighting for our rights both in the UK and in Europe. Together we shout Fuck Brexit!The legal definitions for terms like rape, sexual assault, and sexual abuse vary from state to state and mostly date back to the last century. Mostly, rape continues to be categorised according to the degree of physical violence used or threatened by the perpetrator, or a requirement to show that the victim was in a state of fear or helplessness and unable to defend herself or to formulate or express her will. In many countries, rape might be not considered as such, because the victim didn’t say no, or did not defend itself. This ruling leads to disastrous consequences and advantages of the rapists, in cases where the victim was not able to articulate their will, because e.g. falling into a shock state. Sexual consent is not existent, only because someone didn’t say no. Consent means actively saying yes or showing agreement otherwise.

It is necessary for European countries to tighten their laws to ensure sex without consent or with children is always punishable as rape. There already are countries that have tightened their rape laws during the late #MeToo -years, but the rest of the states are lacking behind and should be facing more severe pressure by civil society and feminist movements on the matter.
