The Friends of Franck Biancheri wish you a happy new year 2019!Les Amis de Franck Biancheri vous souhaitent une bonne année 2019!

Franck Biancheri at the Evry Congress in May 1989 for the launch of the European campaign of IDE, Initiative for a European Democracy, the first trans-European political party to successfully present trans-European lists and a program in Spain, France and the Netherlands.  It’s only 30 years later, with other means (internet, mobile, social networks, crowdfunding …), and after a new experience of Franck Biancheri with the Newropeans in 2009, that parties like DiEM25 (European Spring), Volt, the European Greens, the European federalists, or others more, are trying the adventure for the European elections of May 2019. We invite you to follow them in order to understand what is at stake for Europe today and tomorrow.

We wish a successful democratic new year 2019 !
