The PES, Rainbow Rose – our network for LGBTI Rights (Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual and intersex people) - and PES Women debated the state of play of women’s rights and LGBTI rights in Tunis, Tunisia, on 17 September. At the conference, participants discussed how to better support those rights in the context of the EU-Tunisia trade negotiations. The conference was organised by the Global Progressive Forum, in co-operation with Rainbow Rose, Solidar Tunisia and SHAMS (Tunisian LGBTI organisation).
With its progressive reforms, the PES promotes a real alternative to the politics of cuts and lowest social standards.
Gathering measures ranging from decent wages, quality public services, fair taxation, investment in education and clean technology, the PES programme for progressive reforms shapes a new social and economic model that supports growth and jobs, favours environmental, economic and social sustainability and reduces inequalities.
With the Youth Guarantee, we have shown that another kind of reforms is possible, we are now ready to push for more.
