Welcome to Brussels.
Welcome to the city that always sleeps.
Because, you know, it's no big surprise,
sleepy is all that the powers that be
really want from us.
And of course there is
no better place in Europa...
...where they could actually find it
...the small capital
of a fiscal paradise for the wealthy...
...and fiscal hell for the poor...
...where half of the decisions
affecting all European lives are actually taken.
A city of one million inhabitants...
...of which there are 30.000 individuals
working at the service of the European Union.
That's three percent of the population.
A city also where 30.000 people,
exactly the same amount,
...are exactly working for unregistered lobbies
disguised under the respectable...
...suit of big international law firms
providing consultancy for undisclosed clients.
There is for every single person
working in the European institutions...
...there is one person working for lobby.
What's that for maths?
30.000 people who don't even need
to register, declare what they do and who they meet.
Just as who they meet are not supposed or obliged
(not all of them) to declare it.
30.000 people among which
former European officials having the right,
...fully having the right, to switch
from their position in European institutions...
...to one of these law firms
on the very day they leave their office...
...without any sort of control,
without any sort of limits.
Yes... Welcome to Brussels.
Welcome to the black box of Europa.
Now, let me tell you something:
with your help, with European Spring...
...this black box,
we can blow it off!
