The Federation of Young European Greens (FYEG) with its member organisations are launching "Seven Days of Noise for Love" action week 14th - 20th April, 2014. This action week`s purpose is to raise awareness on Gender and LGBTQ+ related issues, and combat gender stereotypes, homophobia and transphobia.

Krassina Demireva, Co-spokesperson of the Federation of Young European Greens, says "We invite young people from all over Europe to go out on the streets, and unite in their fight against patriarchism. We want to highlight the need of women's empowerment, and to end the discrimination based on sex, gender, sexual orientation and gender identity. In the context of the upcoming European Parliament elections, we want to emphasize that the European legislation should provide relevant legal measures to ensure effective equality."

Michael Bloss, Co-Spokesperson of the Federation of Young European Greens adds "We stand for a Europe of inclusion, solidarity and emancipation. Equal pay, the right to abortion and reproductive rights for everybody.The Europe we want does allow everybody to freely choose their sexual or gender identiy. The rights of the LGBTQ+ communities must not be infringend. We raise our voice, and do not shut our eyes on human rights violations."

The "Seven Days of Noise for Love" action week is part of the FYEG European Parliament elections' campaign. For more information read our FYEG campaign webpage www.reclaimeurope2014.eu

A Green Perspective on the Youth Guarantee PDF Print E-mail

YEP front

This week, following an invitation of the EU Commission, member states and other interested stakeholders come together for a conference on the Youth Guarantee. The conference focusses on the implementation of this policy instrument, that had first been proposed by the Green Group in the European Parliament in 2010.

Nowadays, the Youth Guarantee has become a mainstream instrument, which both the EU Commission and the Governments in Europe pursue and in which they all put hopes. So the conference offers a good occasion to assess where we stand with this instrument.

The Youth Guarantee consists of the promise that all young people under 25 – whether registered with employment services or not – get a good-quality, concrete offer within 4 months after leaving formal education or becoming unemployed.

The Youth Guarantee can be a powerful tool to fight youth unemployment, but it can also be used to make young people disappear from unemployment statistics - real change or just a change of the looks. There can be a temptation to implement the Youth Guarantee only half way. It would thus serve as a mere "storage" strategy for young people, not a real solution. And, indeed, according to the current guidelines for the implementation of the youth guarantee, the programme stays a mere government employment project, but does not empower the youth to achieve their dreams.

Mr. Erdogan, you can shut down Youtube, but you cannot shut US down! PDF Print E-mail
Press Releases
Turkey
During the last weeks the freedom of speech of the people were violated by the Turkish government. First Twitter was shut down and later on YouTube. This comes after claims of Erdogan that he will crack down on Social Media. Both is connected with violent language against the own people and in favor of a war with Syria. We condem this language of escalation and war. It endangers even more the stability in the region.
 
The Young Greens of Turkey state: "We condemns these horrible, dirty, secret war plans on Syria! Even though Turkish government tries to ban our access to internet, even though they try to restrict our basic human right of access to information, they are not and will not be successful! They can ban Twitter or YouTube but they cannot ban our thoughts! We will not be shut down, we will not be silent! We will not be a part of your war games, we will not kill, we will not die, we will not be your soldiers! And if that makes us a traitor, so be it.
Turkish government is violating Human Rights. Turkish government is committing a war crime!"
