Austria: Several prominent people endorse the Seventh Basic Income Week
During or around the Seventh Basic Income week, several prominent Austrians endorsed Basic Income. Singer, actor and cabaret artist Manuel Rubey, who played the leading role in the movie “Falco – Verdammt, wir leben noch!” (2007), unconditionally supports the idea of introducing basic income.
Franz Adrian Wenzl, band member of KREISKY, says that unconditional basic income is one of his favorite utopian ideas, which will hopefully also be put in practice. Kurt Palm, author of “Bad F-cking” (a bizarre thriller, which is set in an Austrian village that attracts tourists due to its fancy name), demands the introduction of unconditional basic income. Writer Franzobel was already involved in the Basic Income Conference in Vienna in 2005. He also supported our European Citizen Initiative “Unconditional Basic Income”. He has one word for the Seventh Basic Income Week on Facebook: “Like!”
