Generation 2.0 RED discusses with the political parties
In the previous months, Generation 2.0 RED invited the parliamentary parties to discuss with their competent departments about issues of migration policy, integration and acquisition of Greek citizenship.
ND, SYRIZA-PS, PASOK-KINAL and KKE responded to this invitation. During the meetings, our organization exposed the main problems in residence permits, the discrimination faced by migrants in social rights, such as access to disability allowance and the national pension, the need to regulate the status of undocumented land workers, the inability of migrants to participate in the municipal elections, the lack of integration policies, the difficult Item Bank and the strict income criteria in naturalization, the extreme delays in granting citizenship for the second generation and the unequal access to this right for people with disabilities.
The representatives of the parties expressed their positions on these issues and committed to promote improvements changes in the legislative framework.
Following the meetings and in view of the May 21 parliamentary elections, Generation 2.0 RED in collaboration with Vouliwatch has invited the parties of the outgoing Parliament to send their written positions on the above issues, which are expected to be published next week.
