GESAC becomes a member of EMI (European Movement International)
We are happy to announce that in late July, GESAC became an associate member of European Movement International (EMI) following a unanimous vote of the EMI board.
EMI is a network of organisations open to all political, economic, social and cultural trends in civil society, with the objective to contribute to the establishment of a united, federal Europe founded on the principles of peace, democracy, liberty, solidarity, and respect for basic human rights. It works as a study and information group, and also as a pressure group, through the influence exerted by its members at all levels in each sector of activity. Several trade unions and political parties are members of EMI: EPP, S&D, ALDE, Confederation of Independent Trade Unions (CSI), the trade unions for the EU institutions civil servant, as well as European umbrella organisations such as the European Federation of Journalists (EFJ) and NGOs in the social and environmental sectors.
With this membership, GESAC will participate in EMI’s discussions and working groups, tackling the many subjects that touch upon authors’ rights and the livelihood of creators.
