FRANCE, STRASBOURG (OCTOBER 7, 2015) (SOCIALISTS AND DEMOCRATS, EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT - ACCESS ALL) 1. CUTAWAY: VARIOUS OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT IN STRASBOURG (EXTERIOR) 2. CUTAWAY: VARIOUS OF THE PLENARY AND THE ENTRANCE OF THE PRESIDENT FRANCOIS HOLLAND AND THE CHANCELLOR ANGELA MERKEL 3. FRANCOIS HOLLANDE (PRESIDENT OF FRANCE) SAYING (FRENCH): “Do we want to go back to the old system of the 20th century? Or do we want to go towards a consistent approach for the coming century? I made my choice: I have chosen Europe, with the will to look for compromises as far as possible and at the highest possible level. That’s the spirit of the collaboration we have intended with Angela Merkel in order to be up to this century’s challenges.” 4. CUTAWAY: PLENARY APPLAUDING AFTER THE PRESIDENT’S SPEECH 5. GIANNI PITTELLA (S&D PRESIDENT) SAYING (ITALIAN): “Dear colleagues, I know that some European citizens and some people in this room believe that the decline of the European Union is inevitable. We have to reject that fatalism. We should remember the words of François Mitterrand, a great European, who said in this chamber: "Our role is to prevent the inevitable, to achieve what is impossible and to ensure that hopes become reality”. Thank you very much.” 6. CUTAWAY: PLENARY APPLAUDING 7. CUTAWAY: FRANCOIS HOLLAND ARRIVING AT THE S&D MEETING 8.

We share the same fight and together, we will struggle to start and reinforce a new vision for Europe.” 9. CUTAWAY: GENERAL VIEW OF THE S&D MEETING ROOM
