Transparency for Europa
[ European Spring 2019 ]
[ A citizen takeover of EU institutions]
[ Bozar Theatre, Brussels ]
We, the European Spring will break open
these (EU) black boxes with full transparency!
Transparency is not an end in itself,
but it's a fight for social justice...
...for peace, security
and it's a shield against corruption.
Europa is a black box.
The symptoms are greed,
crime, radicalization, extremism.
A lack of transparency,
of correct information and of the truth...
...led to mistrust in politics
and give a deep sense of insecurity.
But this lack of transparency
feeds dictators, haters, the greedy,
those who use privileges for themselves
and impose austerity on others.
The lack of transparency
also led us to the banking crisis,
...the bank schandals, tax havens,
corruptions, revolving doors, secrecy,
...abuse of power, lobbies by unclear business
and political deals with dictators.
The fighters for transparency,
or the "whistleblowers",
they are prosecuted, silenced,
or even worse: murdered.
Europa should be
an example of transparency.
We want Europa to be governed
and controlled by the people.
We want a digital tool against fraud
who follows the money:
where it goes, how much they spend,
and for what.
We want all European documents
be public accessible.
No more TTIP.
No more CETA.
We will demand full transparency
and publications of minutes...
of all the European meetings.
We will shine the light
with a mandatory lobby-register.
We will want an end of all the golden visas,
no more privileges for the rich.
We will close the revolving door.
No more in and out of the managers
of the bankers and the multinationals.
We want an anti-fraud office
to stop the corrupt ones.
We want a full fledged
whistleblow-protection across Europa.
We want an end of tax havens.
Banks, Eurocompanies, individuals
who cannot disclose what they do in tax havens...
...can no longer be active in Europa
or they will loose their property rights.
We want to know the beneficiary owner.
The rich will no longer be able to hide
their assets behind an unknown company.
It's time the rich contribute
to our society.
Do you think this is radical?
No! It's justice.
We can no longer go back.
Transparency is the oxygen of Democracy.
