Das Übel im Keim ersticken

17. März 2017

Die Idee wuchs wie ein Unkraut in der Europäischen Kommission: ein Plan für einen europäischen, multilateralen Investment Gerichtshof (MIC). Nur ein weiterer Name für ein System, gegen das wir schon jahrelang im Rahmen der TTIP- und CETA-Verhandlungen protestieren. Dieses parallele Gerichtssystem würde es großen Unternehmen ermöglichen, unsere Regierungen zu verklagen, wenn sie Gesetze erlassen, die die Verbraucher, die Umwelt oder die öffentliche Gesundheit schützen, aber die erwarteten Gewinne der Firmen beeinflussen.

A whole European Citizen’s Initiative to #StopGlyphosate

We know what a constant use of Glyphosate will mean for us, the people of Europe: sick people, dead animals, burnt grass, brown leaves, and a loss of biodiversity. Last year, we were able to block Monsanto’s plans in ways they did not expect. But it’s not over, and in 2017 they will be fighting hard to extend the currently short term approval of this toxic pesticide to 15 years - which is why we will be fighting even harder to stop them.

Left to Freeze

When news and pictures emerged of the conditions refugees in Serbia and Greece were living in this winter -- outdoors, barely surviving the freezing temperatures -- we sprung into action. We raised an outstanding €64,000 to go directly to the organisations helping people on the ground.

Part of the donations have gone to Refugee Aid Serbia helping those braving the cold in Belgrade, as well as Fresh Response, a movement helping those who are stuck on the Serbian/Hungarian border and who face police brutality daily.

Save the Soil

Soil is one of the most strategic resources of Europe as it ensures food security, biodiversity conservation and climate change regulation. It's time to protect the soils of Europe. Each passing minute, the soil is assaulted, suffocated, contaminated, exploited, poisoned, mistreated, and depleted. In Europe, there is no longer a specific law that protects the soil.
