Donald Tusk Urges EU Members to reject nationalism
Today Donald Tusk said:
"Defending the fundamental rights of Europeans, suchs as free movement across borders is our paramount duty."
He also mentioned the fact that the President of the European parliament is Jerzy Burzek, a lutheran politician who since became prime-minister of Poland and is also a member of current prime-minister Donald Tusk's party. Wikipedia reads:
"In the 1980s, Buzek was an activist of the democratic anti-communist movements, including the legal (1980–1981 and since 1989) and underground (1981–1989) Solidarity trade union and political movement in communist Poland. He was an active organiser of the trade union's regional and national underground authorities. He was also the chairman of the four national general meetings (1st, 4th, 5th and 6th) when the Solidarity movement was allowed to participate in the political process again."
