The Red-Green Alliance

The Red-Green Alliance is a democratic socialist party with the aim of combining politics for social change with politics for solving the great environmental problems both on a national and an international level.

The Red-Green Alliance currently has 14 seats in the Danish Parliament (Folketinget). The last municipial and regional election was a great victory for the Red-Green Alliance. The party is now represented in 79 out of 98 municipalities and all five regions.

About the party

The Red-Green Alliance opposes corporate driven globalization, neoliberal politics and privatization and fight for a public sector in which people not profit are at centre. That is why we for years have had a slogan saying »People not profit«. As a democratic party, we stand for the extension of human and democratic rights. We therefore oppose the US-led so-called »war on terror« which confines the above mentioned rights.

Believing in building socialism from below the Red-Green Alliance put priority in social movements outside parliament - not least the trade unions and student movements. But the Red-Green Alliance also stands in national and local parliamentary elections.

The Red-Green Alliance is opposed to the construction of the European Union, which we see as a vehicle of European capitalism, and especially to the building of a European state and the establishment of a European army.

The Red-Green Alliance was formed in 1989 by three left-wing parties: the Left Socialist Party, the Communist Party of Denmark and the Socialist Workers Party, and by independent socialists.

Today the Red-Green Alliance has more than 9000 members, and work closely together with the 1500 members of the Socialist Youth Front (Socialistisk Ungdomsfront) - of which many are also members of the Red-Green Alliance. The Red-Green Alliance has collective leadership, and Johanne Schmidt-Nielsen is currently the political spokesperson.
