ROME, ITALY: Finale of “100 days for a dignity income”, June 30, 2015

On June 30 this year, the Italian campaign “100 days for a dignity income” ended with a public meeting in Rome, with the participation of representatives from civil society organizations and activist groups behind the campaign, and several MPs. Basic Income Network Italy (BIN Italy), BIEN’s Italian chapter, was among the campaign organizers.

70,000 signatures were collected to ask the Italian parliament to debate and approve a national law for a guaranteed minimum income (GMI). Two proposals for a GMI have been submitted to parliament. Neither has reached the stage of being debated by MPs. As part of the campaign, hundreds of public events, debates, workshops and flash mobs took place throughout the country.

The speakers for the final event were: Don Luigi Ciotti, president of Libera; Giuseppe De Marzo, Miseria Ladra; Sandro Gobetti, BIN Italy; Alessandro Di Battista, M5S MP; Nunzia Catalfo, M5S MP; Arturo Scotto, Sel MP; Loredana De Petris, SEL MP; Stefano Iandiorio, CILAP; Riccardo Laterza, Rete della Conoscenza; Filippo Miraglia, Arci; Elena Monticelli, Act!; Mapi Pizzolante, Tilt.
