  • [01] PASOK leader addresses SI Council in Chile

  • [01] PASOK leader addresses SI Council in Chile

    Main opposition PASOK party leader and Socialist International President George Papandreou addressed the International's Council in Santiago, Chile, on Monday, stressing that "citizens, and young people in particular, must be shown that the world can be changed and that globalisation can be made fair, democratic and humane."

    The Socialist International's Council is convening in the capital of Chile on the theme of "From national to global governance - Priority for a secure future."

    Papandreou also discussed the problems and role of youth at international level in a meeting he had during an official dinner with Chilean President Michelle Bachelet, from whom, as he said, he was informed that education problems in Chile are about the same as in Greece.

    Addressing the Council, PASOK's leader said that young people "see that possibilities exist for the eradication of poverty, but this continues to exist, the world can acquire wealth and eliminate diseases but they exist, that there are possibilities of cooperation in the energy sector as well, but the international community cannot even agree on the signing of protocols, such as that of Kyoto."

    Papandreou also focused on the domination of the economy and of the mass media, that are "concentrating more and more power and are influencing politics more and more."

    Young people see, Papandreou added, "that there are politicians who cannot evade this influence. They see more money being invested for weapons, while we can stop war. They also see walls being built that prevent freedom of movement between countries."

    "We must show that we can change this world, this is the target of the Socialist International, adding that such a change cannot take place locally or nationally alone, but there must be action at regional and international level," Papandreou noted.
