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".
