ActionAid and its partners are planning a number of activities around the European elections 2009.
MS in Denmark
Based on the ActionAid manifesto, MS (Danish Association for International Co-operation) is producing a survey for MEP candidates to find out more about their positions and intentions with regard to the fight against poverty in the next parliamentary mandate (2009-2014). The answers to the questions will be shared with the public and the media. Once in their seats, MS will also be monitoring the actions of the elected parliamentarians to ensure that they keep their promises.
MS are also doing an opinion poll of 1200 Danish people on their opinions of issues on the debate around the European elections. You can find out more about both these actions on the MS elections website (in Danish) which is soon to go live, or contact Nils Brogger Jakobsen.
Candidates for the 2009 elections joined the debate, as well as experts on land access and the right to food. A photo exhibition on women and action around access to land in the South ran alongside the event in Montreuil.
Our affiliates and partners in Italy, Greece, the UK, the Netherlands and Sweden will be adding their plans here in the coming weeks. Watch this space!
