3rd European Meeting on Education, Solidarity statement with the Irish campaign against the Lisbon Treaty

The representatives of communist and workers’ parties, movements and youth and students’ organizations that participate in the 3rd European Seminar on Education held in Brussels on 27th of May 2008 extend their solidarity message and support to the Campaign against the Lisbon Treaty, to all the progressive political, trade-union and people’s forces of Ireland which are committed to defeating the new EU Treaty tailored by the ruling classes.

The new European Union Treaty, which was signed by the Heads of State and Government of the EU countries in Lisbon in December 2007, is nothing more than a new version of the so-called “Constitutional Treaty” that was rejected by the peoples.

The ruling classes have put forward its ratification process through summary proceedings without giving the peoples the chance to express their will.

Your country’s Constitutional requirement that the Treaty should be presented to Irish voters in a referendum places Ireland in a unique position among the European Union countries. It is for all this that the June referendum in your country takes on such an enormous importance. Millions of workers, that have been denied a say on the Treaty, have their eyes on the Irish referendum and on the battle that you wage.

A victory of the “No” vote in the Irish referendum will represent a major victory for all the workers and the peoples of the European Union countries; will send a message of optimism to all people across the world!
