ROME, ITALY: International day for the eradication of poverty, October 17, 2015

Several initiatives took place throughout Italy on the occasion of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, held on October 17 this year. A public event in Rome tackled the theme of “Equal social dignity”.

A common document was signed by a number of civil society organizations and activist groups, including Basic Income Network Italy (BIN Italy), BIEN’s Italian chapter. One of the key points was “adequate legislation for income and dignity” as a way to counter new forms of poverty and precariousness. Three draft bills in favor of a guaranteed minimum income deposited in parliament in this legislature have not yet reached the stage of parliamentary debate.

BIN Italy’s President Luca Santini was among the many speakers at the event.
