Roosevelt 2012 – Toward A European New Deal

A collective has been formed in France by leading political and academic figures such as Michel Rocard, Stéphane Hessel, Edgar Morin, Susan George, and to agitate for a program of action against austerity in Europe, in the spirit of the New Deal.  One of the collective’s members is Curtis Roosevelt, octogenarian grandson of FDR, who lives in southern France.  Over 80,000 people have signed on as supporters of Roosevelt 2012’s 15-point program of economic and democratic reforms.  Members of the collective, including Curtis Roosevelt, have been regularly featured in the French media of late.

Richard Walker is the director of the Living New Deal.
