Debat ‘Earlik oer Europa’ op 8 maaie

‘Earlik oer Europa’ is de titel fan it grutte Europa-debat fan it EU-netwerk Noord-Nederland. By dit netwurk binne ûnder oare de Europeeske Beweging yn Nederlân, Europa Direct, LTO Noord en ek it EBLT oansletten. It giet nei alle gedachten om ít Europeeske Debat fan it Noarden. It sil heve op 8 maaie 2014, om 20:00 oere jûns yn de Reade Seal fan it Abe Lenstrastadion op It Hearrenfean.

De diskusje oer Europa is op ‘t heden tige libben; folle libbener as yn it ferline it gefal wie. De kommende Europeeske Ferkiezings fan 22 maaie binne foar de politike partijen dan ek seker gjin ferplicht nûmer. De folgjende kandidaten foar it Europeesk Parlemint dogge oan it debat mei: Bas Eickhout (GrienLinks), Agnes Jongerius (PvdA), Wim Eilering (CDA), Jan Huitema (VVD), Bas Belder (SGP), Fenna Feenstra (SP), Raoul Boucke (D66) en Ton van Kesteren (PVV).
