Our last Strasbourg plenary session before the summer is over, but we're not on holidays! Our fight for a more progressive Europe continues.

This week we had some excellent breakthroughs! Aside from our success in halting the right-wing agenda for the European Commission Work Plan, we stepped the fight against infectious diseases in Europe and secured a major victory for tax transparency. On the global stage we paved the way for a new relationship with Cuba and sent a strong message to Erdoğan: if the proposed constitutional changes go ahead, EU accession talks for Turkey are over!
