BAPN participates to trade union national demonstration on 02/12
The Belgian Anti-Poverty Network and its members, the regional anti-poverty networks, participate in a national demonstration, organised by the national trade unions, on 02 December. The main message is that we cannot make the next generations pay for today’s crisis. “The austerity measures and budget cuts that might be taken bring our society only further away, we need instead an inclusive economic recovery, with qualitative jobs for everybody, and find the money where it is”. See flyer of the demonstration and practical information for the demonstration on the FGTB website.
