Italy: On Saturday 17 June, individual members across Italy joined a campaign organised by the new Italian and pro-European movement of Benedetto della Vedova, Forza Europa! In more than 50 squares across Italy, individual members took part in “La mia piazza é l’Europa” (My square is Europe) campaign which united not only the Italian ALDE Party individual members, but also all the pro-European movements present in Italy.
Country coordinators were also protagonists of the initiative. Antonio Stango (top centre picture) together with Emma Bonino and Benedetto della Vedova demonstrated in the Pantheon Square in Rome, while Francesca Mercanti (top left picture) was defending and promoting Europe in the square of her native city in Tuscany, Marina di Massa, standing next to Marco Cappato (Radicali Italiani), Sara Vatteroni ( regional coordinator Tuscany), Ramon Rosi (individual member) and Lorenzo Tronfi (Comitato Ventotene).
Mercanti said: “When there will be a manifestation to promote Europe, you will always find us in the first line. I wish that the Liberal Democrats in Europe can soon come together in a single movement.“
Austria: On June 7, Austrian individual members met in Vienna to discuss the strategy process launched by the individual members steering committee to clarify the vision and mission of ALDe Party individual members. Members in Austria believe that individual membership strengthens European civil society with the aim to positively influence many decisions. Among other issues they also discussed what individual members can contribute to the Austrian national elections amongst.
