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. This will be a crucial moment for us to put pressure on our national governments. Can you help us carry on into this next round with a small donation?

 

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!
