"Europe has been a great added value for the protection of consumers"

At the meeting were present the President of CIME (Comitato Italiano per il Movimento Europeo), Virgilio Dastoli, the Director of the Magazine l'Unità Europa, Giorgio Anselmi, Prof Marco Mascia, director of the Centre for Human Rights and Member of the Presidency Board of CIME, Diego Bottacin, of the European Commission of the Region Veneto and Matteo Moschini, from the Regional section of the Movement Defending Consumer Rights. Many others European oriented networks have confirmed their support to the initiative.

"We would like to create a network of pro European oriented stakeholders" in the Veneto regions, share our activities and develop synergies for a better impact", said the Director of ALDA, Antonella Valmorbida. The next step is to draft a Memorandum that will be sent for subscription to all the Members of CIME present in Veneto Region, adding also the other European movements and association present in the area. Other targets will need to be reached by identifying possibilities of cooperation.

Act react impact

"We need to share with citizens - in such a difficult moment - why Europe has been and is a real added value. I am working as a lawyer and represent the Movement Defending Consumers. Many in not so many other cases, Europe has shown it added value as for consumers. It increased a common legislation which is clearer and more complete for everybody. Now the labels are standardized and we expect to have all the same information. Legislation gives us also the possibility to act in case of beach of these rules. We need to work hard to raise the awareness of citizens towards the european Parliamentary elections and let's vote for Europe".
