David Sassoli, the voice of Europe at the Meeting
"The courage to say I, for me calls to a strong individual and collective responsibility and to the awareness that we Europeans are once again called to participate in a great work of human liberation".
David Sassoli had always intervened at the Meeting during his three years of mandate. Here he found the same passion for European ideals that guided him as president of the European Parliament.
