Our Vision for Europe
Libertas is for a United, Federal, Europe.
What does that mean?
It means that we agree that joining the EU was the best decision Ireland ever made.
It means that we want Ireland to be involved right at the heart of Europe.
It means that we want a European Union that every citizen can be involved with, can exert control over, and can take part in.
Europe doesn’t work like that today. It’s run by an unelected bureaucracy in Brussels that isn’t connected to the realities of everyday life for people across Europe, and isn’t accountable to anybody when it gets things wrong.
It’s controlled by a few major powerbrokers, and the millions of people governed by its laws have a minimal say on what happens.
We want that to change. Declan Ganley has worked with leading academics and like-minded reforming politicians at home and across Europe to come up with a series of radical and reforming ideas to improve Europe.
Here are a selection of major articles and speeches he has delivered that will give you a very clear sense of where why we stand for a United, Federal Europe.
