The Left Party and its Economics Commission have been conducting for some time now a thorough reflection on the necessary disobedience to existing treaties governing the European Economic and Monetary Union. In 2010 already, the symposium "Governing against banks" organized by Jacques Généreux raised thoughts on ways citizens could keep their banking sector under democratic control. The European and monetary question also led to several contributions from the Left Party, in particular the 2011 euro resolution. The economics commission of the Left Party has always maintained that no sacrifice should be endured strictly for the sake of the euro, and that if we had to choose between the implementation of our program and staying in the Eurozone, we would rather exit than give up on our democratic mandate.
