1. updated participating countries’ list
2. Call for Basic Income Marches around the world on 26th Oct
3. The motto for next year’s ibiw – send in your suggestions NOW!
1. This week there were live events in 18 countries on 5 continents (we’re sadly missing Africa this year). Not all events made in onto the calendar on https://basicincomeweek.org, partly due to the attacks on the website at the start of the week, partly due to not everyone using the calendar and us becoming aware of events through social media: Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Netherlands, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, UK, US. But as you know, there are basic income developments in many other countries around the globe.
2. Next global action: 26th Oct: Basic Income March.https://www.basicincomemarch.com/
Currently there are Marches planned in the USA, Netherlands and in Germany. These cities are taking part so far: New York, Amsterdam, Berlin, and Minneapolis.
If you want to organise your own or join an existing one, please get in touch with the organisers via the website or: https://twitter.com/IncomeMarch
