Wer trägt die Steuerlast?

CBCR_delivery_April_16.jpgJeder Bürger muss Steuern zahlen und die große Mehrheit trägt auch jedes Jahr bei. Nur die großen, multinationalen Konzerne können sich in vielen Ländern davor drücken. Nach vielen Jahren des öffentlichen Drucks, überlegt die EU endlich diese Konzerne zu mehr Transparenz zu zwingen.

Stop private tribunals for corporations

The European Commission plans to give more to corporations to sue European countries, despite broad public pressure not to extend corporation’s privileges, including more than 93,00 of you! We know this is a long term battle, but we also know it’s worth the fight that’s why we are still watching and acting. Don’t miss the boat: sign and fight for a European democracy led by the people and not by greedy corporations!


Endlich: Ein "Panama Papers" - Untersuchungskomitee

Mehr als 47.000 Europäer haben die EU-Politiker gebeten etwas gegen Steuerflucht und Geldwäsche zu unternehmen und wir haben alle Unterschriften an den Europäischen Rat ausgehändigt. Daraufhin hat das Parlament ein Untersuchungskomitee zu den Panama Papers eingerichtet um mögliche Missstände in der EU-Verwaltung und -Gesetzen aufzudecken. Dies ist ein großartiger Start!


Dangerous ‘Trade Secrets Protection’ law

We lost a battle but achieved so much more than we had hoped. In just a few days we collected over 280,000 signatures calling for the rejection of legislation that puts whistleblowers and journalists at risk of being imprisoned for working in the public interest. It looked like the vote was going to be postponed - thanks in part to the pressure we put together on the European Parliament. Sadly the vote went ahead and the law was passed. Now the law needs to be adapted by each EU country before it takes effect.

And there has been more

In the past, we also worked on campaigns aimed at encouraging our community in the UK to take a stand on the EU referendum, exposing the Volkswagen fraud, rejecting the xenophobia and intolerance that is spreading throughout Europe, and demanding EU leaders to adopt more safe asylum options for refugees, among others.

Ultimately, all our campaigns pursue our common vision of a European Union committed to social and economic justice, environmental sustainability and citizen-led democracy. Thanks for being part of this!
