A campaign is underway by the left group in the European Parliament to honour the late, great resistance fighter and Greek MEP, Manolis Glezos.

The veteran activist and former GUE/NGL member died earlier this week at the age of 97, and the group feels that an honour that befits a political figure as eminent as Glezos is well-deserved and appropriate inside the Parliament.

As it is customary for Parliamentary conference rooms to be named after European personalities of historical significance, co-presidents Manon Aubry and Martin Schirdewan & Parliament’s Vice President Dimitris Papadimoulis have proposed in a letter to President David Sassoli that the conference room used by GUE/NGL should be renamed in Glezos’s honour.

Given his lifelong achievements based on European and democratic values, and his decades-long struggle against fascism, the co-presidents believe that such a proposal fully meets the Parliament’s criteria.
