Support the European Citizens' Initiative for Unconditional Basic Income

I support this campaign and appeal to those who believe in social justice and in policies which aim to end poverty to sign the 2 European-wide petitions (links below)

European Citizens' Initiative for Unconditional Basic Income - Maltese NGOs call for support

Zminijietna Voice of the Left, Anti-Poverty Alliance and General Workers' Union Youths appealed to the Maltese public to sign the official European-wide Citizens' Initiative in support of an unconditional basic income, which will help combat poverty and improve the quality of life of millions of citizens.

The petition can be signed at basicincome2013.eu

"Signing this petition will give a strong message to the European Commission to take issues such as poverty and economic inequality seriously, and to start a European-wide official debate on policies in this regard"

An Avaaz petition on the initiative can also be found at:
