The public debate "A new Parliament for new Europe": Federalists meet new MEPs (19.00, European Parliamentary Association) will give activists from civil society organisations and EU citizens the chance to discuss with the most federalist-minded of the newly elected MEPs on their priorities for the new term of the European Parliament and the perspectives of action towards a federal Europe.
Tomorrow morning (2 July) we are calling pro-EU citizens to voice their demands to the new MEPs in a rally in front of the European Parliament before its opening plenary session (8.00-10.00).
