It is with great sadness that we receive the news of the passing of a great friend and ally. Michael Hoppe represented the spirit of cooperation and shared purpose for a progressive future that binds
our movements together and he will be deeply missed.
Our thoughts, solidarity and deepest condolences go to Michael’s family and friends and to everyone in the S&D. We shall follow his example and honor his memory by continuing the shared struggle for a more progressive Europe together.
