Statement of the Workers' Party of Belgium (PTB)


El Partido del Trabajo de Bélgica (PTB-PVdA) condena la violencia brutal de la policía española en Cataluña y llama al diálogo.

The Workers' Party of Belgium (PTB-PVDA) condemns the brutal violence of the Spanish police in Catalonia and calls for dialogue. “We condemn the brutal violence by the Spanish State and plead for a negotiated solution”, says PTB-PVDA chairman Peter Mertens.

A majority of the Britsh people have opted out of the European Union. “This Europe of competition and inequality (the plague) foments nationalism and division (cholera). This is what I already wrote in 2011 in my book 'How dare they?', says PTB chairman Peter Mertens in a first reaction to the Brexit. “We shouldn't deny the facts. Another Europe is needed: with more democracy, more transparency, more solidarity, in order to facilitate a radical social and ecological change.”
