Mr Attila Vajnai, President of the Council of Presidents of the European Left Party was the guest of the 15th Congress of USF. He intervened on the issue of the rise of nationalism in Europe. Excerpt from his speech:
There is so much to do and to work on to achieve better working conditions everywhere. Especially in these times where precarious jobs have been imposed and therefore instability has unfortunately became part of the life, especially that of young people. And now we have also to face another huge struggle that is becoming more and more vital all around Europe, the rise of authoritarian nationalisms.
