Because of previous demands from non-governmental bodies, we have been motivated to create this informative website about what public services in Europe should be like.
Citizens, should be aware that public services, should satisfy their needs without being privatized.
It must not be forgotten that they are essential for social, economic and regional cohesion in Europe. These services must be of a high quality and accessible to everyone. Until now, privatization or liberalization of public services have been the only the options presented for public services development. (ie, in areas such as energy, post office and telecommunications). The moment to find different solutions has arrived.
For this reason, a petition was presented to the European Commission proposing legislation on public services regarding various topics:
1 – Give general priority to the general interest reflected in public services.
2 – Ensure that everyone has access to public services without additional cost.
3 – Strengthen public services in order to guarantee the basic right of citizens.
4 – Guarantee greater legal security to permit a sustainable development.
5 – Provide services with a legal solid basis and therefore provide an ideologically motivated immunity by free market attacks.
