Why support Mary Robinson for President of the European Council?

It is about time for something in the European Union to come the citizens’ way.



In an excellent post, Frank Schnittger over at the European Tribune has laid out the main reasons to support Mary Robinson, in “Mary Robinson for President of the European Council” (20 October 2009).

The short message to the EU leaders is: Elect the person we can be proud of.



Among other things, EU citizens can join the growing Facebook group in support of Mary Robinson becoming the President of the European Council. There are now 6,124 supporters, which means that 122 had joined since yesterday morning.
