Hi folks,

I've been on Grön Ungdom's (GU) annual meeting in Göteborg last weekend and 
I wanted you to know, that they decided to end the membership in FYEG and 
to apply for observership at next General Assembly (GA). 48 members were in 
favour of it and 31 wanted Grön Ungdom to remain a member.

The main reasons for leaving were, that some people see the tendency in 
FYEG to become the youth organization of the "European Green Party" instead 
of staying a grassroots orientated network. The organization's members are 
against European Union and its "Constitution"-treaty, these are two more 
reasons for them to be against the European-wide FYEG. Grön Ungdom's 
membership fee of 25.000 SEK (appr. 2750 EUR) will be spend for other 
international networks or cooperation.

But they also decided to work close together with FYEG and CDN, although 
they don't want to remain member.

After Danmark's Grøn Ungdom was suspended from membership at last GA and 
Sweden now left, some people now try to convince the GU of Norway to leave 
too. The want to found a regional network of the Scandinavian Green Youth 
organizations for a strong cooperation between these groups.

Greetings from Berlin,

International Representative
Green Youth in Germany
