Picasso’s drawing was commissioned by the World Peace Council in 1951 when campaigning against NATO’s drive for German rearmament – of which the first stage was the redevelopment of German heavy industry under the auspices of the European Coal and Steel Community. The ECSC was the first institutional component of the European Union.

Radical Options for Scotland Europe (ROSE) was established in the summer of 2016 as a Labour Movement campaign to defend and advance the rights of working people in Scotland in the negotiations following the EU referendum.

ROSE seeks to bring together both those in the Labour Movement who voted to Remain and those who supported Leave to defend the rights we have and to maximise the opportunities that exist to advance workers’ rights outside the EU.

ROSE believes that substantial opportunities do now exist and these are listed here in the ROSE: Statement of Aims. At the same time none will be secured without campaigning and a united understanding of these issues involved – and the biggest danger is that the terms of Brexit will be negotiated on neo-liberal lines.

On this front, ROSE will continue the educational work of SCAEF which it incorporates.

Its core principles are, first, the enhancement of workers’ rights in Scotland and, secondly, internationalism and solidarity with all those across Europe struggling against austerity and privatisation.
