Nuevo vídeo: Tras los pasos de los lobbies

A veces, las historias de las noticias nos hacen pensar en quien esta realmente moviendo los hilos.

Este vídeo de 10 minutos muestra cuál es el papel de los lobbies empresariales en los procesos de decisión de la UE – quienes son, cómo consiguen lo que quieren, y cómo sus actividades te afectan a ti, y a los ciudadanos como tu en todo Europa, desde la comida que comes, hasta las leyes para los banqueros, o los quimicos permitidos en productos cotidianos. ¡Mira, aprende, comparte!



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!
