ATTAC Norway and EU

ATTAC Norway will be launched on 31 May. After a meeting in the interim governing body on Thursday, the proposed platform will be accessible on the Internet in order to enable members to take part in the debate, writes Norwegian paper Klassekampen.

The interim governing body holds persons with widely diverging views on Norwegian EU membership, and it has been next to impossible for the press to make any member of the governing body pronounce on ATTAC Norway and the EU. However, according to Klassekampen, the members agree that ATTAC Norway should abstain from having an attitude to Norwegian EU membership.

Wenche Fossum, who represents the Yes to EU side, says to Klassekampen, "we have had hard debates across all dividing lines - gender, age, attitude to the EU and so on. The interim governing body is very broad, and we have good discussions."

Asbjørn Wahl and Vibeke Sørum, who represent the No line, will not say what the body is discussing right now. However, the point of departure is the international ATTAC platform, says Wahl.

Opinion

The euro — who's next?

Bulgaria's target date for joining the eurozone, 1 January 2024, seems elusive. The collapse of Kiril Petkov's government, likely fresh elections, with populists trying to score cheap points against the 'diktat of the eurocrats', might well delay accession.
