Jan 14: The Brussels Business
Who runs the European Union? The documentary The Brussels Business gives a clear answer to this question: Big corporations, who laid the foundation for the currently existing EU and the neoliberal content it got.
Through a powerful network of contacts, influence and lobby-structures, corporate power manages to keep control. How this works, why this is problematic, and also what could be changed to make the situation less lopsided in favour for Big Business, is explained in the 85 minutes documentary The Brussels Business (2012).
One of the experts that perform in the documentary, Erik Wesselius from watchdog Corporate Europe Observatory, will give an introduction to the documentary and will be answering questions after the showing. The evening will end wit the announcement of some big international protests and gatherings to come in the EU.
