The banks never gave us back all the 4.5 trillion euros we paid them in aid following the financial crisis that hit Europe in 2010. People had to rescue the bankers and speculators responsible for the devastation of our economies and welfare.
Soon 10 key EU Finance Ministers will meet to discuss an agreement to clamp down on harmful speculation by applying a tax on dangerous financial transactions. The tax would raise money for public expenditure while discouraging the kind of speculation that helped lead to the economic collapse. It’s in our hands to raise our voice loud enough to make our collective outcry unmissable - join more than 290,000 other Europeans now. Sign!
