Does the parlement still represent the people?

Dear friend,

While settling for a poor information, the National Council curtly refused to support our initiative, 49% of respondents to a survey Tagesanzeiger whom have declared themselves in favor. So take advantage of federal elections to renew our Parliament with the candidates supporting the RBI and find the necessary means for the people to vote being sufficiently informed.

UBI arrives in Europe!

Dear friend,

Three European countries are about to set up experiments on the Unconditional Basic Income: Finland, Holland and France. This shows that the UBI begins to be considered in Europe as a serious solution to the crisis of growth and employment. The European example could be an asset when, in one year about, the Swiss initiative will be voted. It will show to the people of the country that the UBI is not an utopia, but a realistic project which answers a real need.

Information is essential

Dear friend,

The information on unconditional basic income (UBI) is gradually getting organized, and there are new publications just waiting to stimulate your grey cells. One of them is the detailed information dossier we have just sent to the Members of Parliament (Conseillers nationaux) who are considering the matter; another is a brand new French-language newspaper entirely devoted to the subject of UBI.

Two major events marked last week: Rosetta landed on 67P comet and basic income entered the Swiss Parliament! National Council's Social Affairs Commission (SGK-N in German) started studying our initiative. And by Christmas Holidays, the first edition of the francophone magazine "L'inconditionnel", entirely dedicated to basic income, will be available everywhere in French speaking Switzerland too.

Génération RBI invites you…

« I am convinced that we must achieve Basic Income as a means of emancipation, to build freedom and ownership of one’s life through social justice, not just as a measure in response to poverty. »

Guy Standing, April 10th 2014, EESC, Brussels

Dear friend,

After the signature collection, the work continues… The campaign is challenging, but we have our resources: creativity, collective intelligence and collaboration are in full swing. Génération RBI, Romandie, is an active group favoring Basic Income, and will soon launch a dedicated website in a campaign to be remembered. You are invited to meet them on the afternoon of BIEN-CH General Assembly and join in on the fun!

8 million pieces of 5 centimes

Everybody's talking about the swiss initiative!

Dear friend,

Last october 4th, we have submitted 126'000 signatures in Berne. To symbolize a basic income granted to every citizen in our country, 8 million pieces were poured before Berne's Federal Palace. That event is still debated in media all around the world, which still can't believe that in our country people has the power to decide whether each of his citizens deserves an unconditional basic income, high enough to live with.
