Last week the European Parliament PASSED a law blocking senior members from secret meetings from lobbyists – requiring a public record of what meetings happen.
In the last weeks the WeMove community has sent tens of thousands of emails to the Members of the European Parliament (MEPs). During just the last two days before the vote 90,000 of us signed a petition urging the MEPs to vote in favour of the rule. And it worked!
Transparency won, even though, due to a request by the European People’s Party, the ballot was secret. And it won by only FOUR VOTES. Just imagine!
This is the difference our community has made in Europe.
