Poland has a new Pro-EU party, we should all celebrate, and most important, give so much importance to it as we did for all those anti-EU movements across Europe.
A movement is as powerful as the attention we give to it, and in that sense, I will always remember what I read about Mother Teresa:
“I was once asked why I don't participate in anti-war demonstrations. I said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I'll be there.”
― Mother Teresa
These words just got stuck into my mind and they demonstrate something that I truly believe in. Trump and Bolsonaro are just two clear examples o this, anti-Trump movements and #EleNão, just gave power to what we didn't want.
It is time to give power to true movements around Europe, power to unity, acceptance and cooperation.
It is just a bit sad that the FT decides to give the main focus of that new to the fact that the politician that is leading the change in Poland is gay.
I mean, having a gay politician is for sure a big step for Poland, which in that sense is more developed than Portugal, (or maybe all gay Portuguese are just too honest for all the corruption of our parliament). Nevertheless, politics has nothing to do with the sexual preferences of the person and I look forward to a future where "labels" stop being produced for everything.
Now let's hope this pro-EU movement starts spreading across Europe so we can get our groove back as Europeans, in a Europe that celebrates our differences while being part of a big group!
