Europe, CAPPA: “Erasmus Generation believes in a political Europe”


Brussels – “The youth unemployment has reached a critical point as Van Rompuy and Barroso both declared this morning. Therefore it is urgent to address the EU summit of Monday with determination to this problem trying to reach consensus on a strategy for growth and job opportunities for young Europeans” this is what declared Marco Cappa, President of Young Democrats for Europe.

“Merkel said that she wants a political Europe; we answered: finally she got it! For such a long time she was the one putting obstacles and limitations to the process of European integration. Too busy to look at her electorate rather than to a ‘strong and united Europe “- continued Cappa – “No doubts. Erasmus generation totally supports the project of a more cohesive Europe that will bring more stability to the Euro and, as a result, to the economies of member states and to the future of youngsters”.
