RSM demonstrations against mafia
RSM demonstrations against mafia
Since 1996, in Italy the 21st of March marks the Day of Memory and Commitment to commemorate all victims of mafias (Giornata della Memoria e dell'Impegno in ricordo delle vittime innocenti delle mafie). This day is organised by Libera - an Italian association that promotes outreach activities and various types of protest action against mafia - and it gathers anti-mafia movements from all over the country.
During this day, Rete degli Studenti Medi (RSM) joined many events all around the country, showing how education and student activism should play a key role in raising awareness on this important topic and helping to build a real anti-mafia consciousness in the whole society.

OBESSU reaction to the White Paper on the future of Europe
In the recent “White Paper on the future of Europe” published by the European Commission, the drivers of change in the next decade are mapped out and five different scenarios for how Europe could evolve by 2025 are presented. The White Paper’s main focus is on answering the question “What future do we want for ourselves, for our children and for our Union?”
The White Paper is the European Commission’s contribution to a new chapter in the European project. In the paper the European Commission maps out both the challenges ahead and also the opportunities.
