Was contacted by PES advertising their site.
Had a look and found this which was launched recently. “A Financial Transaction Tax in Europe Now!”.
PES is the Party of European Socialists, The Labour Party are affiliated to it.
Their website is worth a visit
As they say themselves…
The Party of European Socialists (PES) brings together the Socialist, Social Democratic and Labour Parties of the European Union (EU). Its aims include:
* the strengthening of the socialist and social democratic movement in the Union and throughout Europe;
* the development of close working relationships between the national parties, the national parliamentary groups, the Parliamentary Group of the PES, PES Women, ECOSY, and other socialist and social democratic organisations;
* the definition of common policies for the European Union; and
* the adoption of a common manifesto for elections to the European Parliament.
