(dailystarpost) - The Eurexit Movement launched in January thanks to cross-border eurosceptics from Italy, France and Spain, with the help of the Brexit Party from the UK. The movement is now growing, with members from the Czech Republic, Ireland and Bulgaria joining the team, as announced on the group’s Twitter account on Thursday.
They wrote: “We welcome the Irish Freedom Party, Odchod movement and Bulgariya na Truda i Razuma to the #Eurexit Movement!
“Our manifesto is now available in Czech and Bulgarian.”
The anti-European Union initiative began when Generation Frexit leader Charles-Henri Gallois, Italexit leader Gianluigi Paragone and former Brexit Party MEP Alexandra Phillips teamed up for a continental campaign to leave the EU.
Somos Espana leader Luis Carlos Nogues soon joined the quest to fight for Spain to leave the bloc.
The group of eurosceptics hope their Eurexit Movement can help start a debate about the benefits of quitting the European Union across the bloc.
Speaking to Express.co.uk in February, Mr Nogues said: “We are just getting started”.
The group of anti-EU leaders drafted a joint manifesto promoting individual states’ freedom to pursue real sovereignty while remaining allies with the EU.
Mr Nogues said the plan was to have a “transversal coalition” of nations in the respect of each others’ sovereign power to rule outside of the EU.
They pledge: “20 years after its creation, the euro is a colossal failure.
“It stifles the economy of several European countries, contributes to their deindustrialisation and benefits only a few select countries – first and foremost Germany.
“We affirm that the act of issuing one’s own money is a fundamental attribute of the democratic nation-state, like the control of its borders, its armies or its diplomacy.
“Each country must have a currency adapted to its economy.
“That is why we are demanding an exit from the euro (a demand which the signatory parties that are not part of the euro area fully support).”
Finally, they rebuke the idea the European Union could be reformed as some eurosceptics across the bloc like Matteo Salvini and Marine Le Pen now vow to do.
They say: “The European Union cannot be reformed. Since the signing of the Treaty of Rome, we have kept hearing promises from “another Europe”, but this has never resulted in concrete facts.
“Regaining sovereignty and therefore democracy requires getting out of the European Union and Eurozone – and the sooner the better.”
