There is enough for everyone!In the 70s and 80s it was said that if the economy was in good shape, there would be enough jobs for everyone. Now we read in the newspapers that firms are making massive profits. The level of profits being made from speculation has never been seen before. Despite this, in the EU countries there are 20 million people unemployed and 50 million people, above all women, are threatened by poverty.
In Austria, last year, 300,000 people were permanently out of work and more than 700, 000 were unemployed on at least one occasion. In one of the world's richest countries, 1.5 million people live on or under the poverty line.
This situation is unbearable!
So we want to demonstrate against this situation at the holding of the EU summit in Vienna on the 12th of December. We want to demonstrate together with our friends and colleagues, women and men from Great Britain, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Germany, East European countries, in fact from the whole of Europe. We want to demonstrate for a Social Europe which is a Europe worth living in.
