Working for Ethical Finance
 Villafranca di Verona, Vérone, Italie

 

THE CONTEXT OF YOUR INITIATIVE

Emmaus Villafranca and other groups co-organise awareness-raising events in Italy on the topic of ethical finance.

Today we are the hostages of speculative finance, it is a threat to our European democracies. This type of finance dominates in governments and in the lives of citizens.

Those in power have completed a vast transfer of wealth from the poor and middle class to plundering financiers and have passed this off as being something legal.

Organising public debates.
Holding conferences with experts.
Working with other networks to organise plays on this topic.
Participating in public awareness-raising events.
