20150705_bank_queue_150

A house divided against itself? The nationalist right is on the up and negative headlines make the running, and yet, polls show that support for the EU is recovering and spontaneous displays of consensus in matters such as the Charlie Hebdo assassinations bear witness to our continued ability to empathise and to work together.

A Krytyka Polityczna TTT debate
'Whose solidarity, whose egoism?' Debate
