Our documentary filming receives a great honor
The film previous to our present project, the film â€žWater Makes Moneyâ€œ is to receive the Kant-World Citizen Prize 2014! During a festive ceremony on Europe-Day, the 9th of May 2014 in the auditorium of the Albert-Ludwigs-University in Freiburg, tribute will be paid to â€žWater Makes Moneyâ€œ as an â€ž excellent example of strategically and structurally important critical education, benefiting a self-determined Europeâ€, as â€œ... a remarkable success of Democracy in Europeâ€
Legal action against â€žWater Makes Moneyâ€œ is finally terminated
On the 28th of March 2013 the legal action of the Veolia group of companies against â€žWater Makes Moneyâ€œ was rejected by the criminal court of justice in Paris. Now Veolia has finally waived its right to an appeal hearing. The film can therefore continue to lable â€œcorruptionâ€ as corruption in all the world. Only in France will it be required to delete the statement of Jean-Luc Touly that he had been offered one Million Euro. We have thus escaped the sword of Damocles of an endless series of appeal hearings against a Billionaire group of companies, hanging over our heads!
Strengthened and with our head held up high we dedicate ourselves thus to the present public information film â€œWho's saving whom? The crisis as a business modelâ€! Some pertinent figures: The five largest US-Banks have combined total assets of about 6.3 Billion Euro, which is 1.9 Billion more than in mid 2007. Another main trigger for the financial crisis, the market for derivatives â€“ i.e. for bets, has grown from 586 Billion Dollars to almost 633 Billion Dollars. In 2007 about 97% of the trading in the Euro consisted of derivatives. Today it is 98% - just 2% remains for the real trading in the currency!
A big step forward
In the financing of the film since our last newsletter, we have achieved much â€“But It is crucial that the 130,000â‚¬ â€žcontributions from the bottom upâ€œ and the 30,000â‚¬ from the organizations (that means in total 160,000â‚¬) be achieved. Only then will the official film funding help us fully as national co-financing.
? Spread the call â€žwho's saving whom?â€œ
? If you have contacts to the media initiate a report on the project.
We don't need so much more. The â€œcontributions from the bottom upâ€ can be achieved!
