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!


Happy reading

Basic Income at the solidaritéS spring university sessions

La Bessonnaz Farm

« Injustice raises at a sure pace » Berthold Brecht.

For its 5th Edition, the spring university will focus on the conflicting dynamics that the world is going through at the local, regional and international levels with a focus on the “new” challenges of what a modern radical left wing should be today. As such, anyone drawn to resistance and activism, will not only hold the ground on which all revolutionaries as well as neo-conservatives stand, it is always necessary to have a renewed understanding, to be able to act, to think to fight…


Saturday May 17th

  • Jean-Marie HARRIBEY economist, professor at the University of Bordeaux IV, (France), member of scientific committee for ATTAC (France)
