A video of a speech in the European Parliament by Spanish MEP Esteban Gonzales Pons is going viral on social media.
The rousing talk highlights the problems currently being faced on the continent, highlighting the importance of unity in a time of great instability.
He said: “Europe is currently bound to the North by populism and to the South by refugees drowned in the sea.
“To the East by Putin’s tanks, to the West by the Trump Wall.
“In the past by war, in the future with Brexit.
“Today, Europe is alone more than ever, but its citizens do not know it.
“Europe is, however, for that reason, the best solution and we do not know how to explain that to our citizens”.

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
