Peter Mertens, leader of the Workers’ Party of Belgium, believes the Eurozone debt crisis is pushing member states towards “a very large number of social conflicts.” Mertens told RT that Europe faces three alternatives – Saving the euro with “authoritarian measures by taking national sovereignty overnight to the European level”, Breaking up into “two, three or four Europes”, or
Adopting a socialist model, “where banking system is public, where energy system is public, where there is democracy.”
He believes Europe needs radical changes to its financial sector and that grass root movements , people’s demand is vital.
