There are no words to describe the horror of the events that took place last night. Our thoughts go out to all victims, their families & the British people.

Manchester, we are with you today in sorrow and we will be with you tomorrow as we fight to ensure that hate never wins out over hope, that terror never wins out over love.

The Greek people and authorities have made too many sacrifices already. It’s high time for creditors to fulfil their own responsibilities and obligations. The Greek debt is asphyxiating the economic recovery and the people. We urge Eurogroup ministers meeting today in Brussels not only to sign off on the third bailout programme, but to finally move towards debt relief. Enough with this...

We know, building #EuropeTogether is a long journey. But for us it is the only way forward. From Estonia to the rest of the European Union, we debated what we think should be a model for a Social Europe. Everyone had the right to contribute, every idea was discussed and a common solution was found. This is how democracy work, this is how we can build together a new direction for Europe! Thank...

It takes a strong partnership with Africa to tackle today’s global challenges. There is no way the European Union can address the root causes of migration, climate change, extreme poverty or even terrorism without our African counterparts and a long term strategy. Africa is and will remain a top priority of our group! Next week, Gianni Pittella and Cécile Kyenge Kashetu will go on a...

No, we won’t stand idly by and watch Viktor Orbán continue to mock European values. In the face of his repeated attacks against democracy and the rule of law, we had no other option today but to begin the process of activating Article 7 of the EU Treaty, which can ultimately lead to the suspension of voting rights and European funds. We very much hope that this will serve as a warning and...

Whoever we are. Whoever we love. We all deserve the same rights.

In recent decades there has been a transformation in attitudes to LGBTI rights. Anti-discrimination laws, marriage equality and gender recognition legislation are becoming more and more common. But we only need to look to what's happening in Chechnya and other places around the world to see that our fight is not over. Today on...

Globalisation has made winners and losers. This week the European Commission took steps to curb the negative consequences of Europe's changing economy. A good start but we want to see concrete actions.

Unexperienced should never mean free or disposable. At the S&D Group, we lead by example by offering decent salaries and good working conditions to all of our interns. So today, we encouraged Members of the European Parliament to sign the #FairInternship Manifesto through which they commit to pay their interns for all the work they accomplish. We do not stop there: we are advocating for a...
