Neues Video: Lobbyismus in der EU

Die Macht der Lobbyisten

Wer steckt wirklich hinter der Politik der EU? Dieses 10-minütige Video gibt Einblick in die Rolle von Konzern-Lobbygruppen im EU-Entscheidungsprozess: Wer sind sie? Wie bekommen sie was sie wollen? Und was bedeutet das für uns - das Essen auf unseren Tellern, die Regulierung von Banken und Chemikalien in Alltagsgegenständen? Video anschauen, mehr erfahren und weiterleiten!



Exposing the lobbying of big business costs money. Would you consider a donation to help us continue? We refuse funding from the EU, governments, political parties and corporations to be as independent as possible, so every single donation really helps. Thanks!

Zu Reach habe ich aber als an Tierwohl interessierter Bürgerin eine differenzierte Meinung, denn tatsächlich werden dafür wieder hunderttausende Tiere auf entsetzliche Weise ihr Leben lassen müssen.
Anstatt also mittels Tierversuchen zu überprüfen, sollte überhaupt diese ganz Zahl von Giften grundsätzlich reduziert werden und nur tierversuchsfreie Überprüfungsmethoden angewandt werden.
Aber da sind wir natürlich wieder bei den Lobbyisten der entsprechenden Wirtschaftszweige, denne das Wohl von Menschen, Tieren und Umwelt am Allerwertesten vorbei geht

Stop ISDS campaign 2019

This year provides a rare opportunity to end some of the most outrageous rights enjoyed by big business: the investor-state dispute settlement system or ISDS. Under ISDS corporations and the rich have sued governments for billions of euros – for anything from introducing health warnings on cigarettes to banning dirty oil drilling. Campaigners and social movements are uniting in 2019 to put an end to this parallel justice system for big business.

Whenever a government passes a law which could potentially affect profits, the ISDS system enables companies to hit back with lawsuits for damages - often worth billions of euros. Under the ISDS (Investor-State Dispute Settlement) system, corporations have already sued countries for anything from introducing health warnings on cigarettes to placing a moratorium on fracking.

Coal garnered much media attention, thanks to the Polish Government and US President Trump’s support. But it was the gas industry that really stunk up the conference, its influence seeping into all corners of the negotiating halls. Luckily activists and communities were present to call industry out and demand real solutions.

Lobbying around the EU Copyright Directive has been intense: big-budget tech platforms led by Google as well as tech industry trade associations on one side, historically important collecting societies, the creative industries and publishers on the other. The interests and opinions of citizens have become sidelined in the resulting turmoil.
