The hidden threat: Asbestos fibres in our drinking water

  • Environment
  • Healthcare

EUROPE – Asbestos is now banned in 69 countries, but it is still found in our drinking water. Water pipes are made of asbestos cement release fibres that can be lethal when inhaled. Experts have warned about this problem for decades, but the issue persists. 

Ghost debts

  • Finance

EU - Hundreds of thousands of evictions and people enchained to debt, while financial actors in tax havens as well as EU countries profit from a system that originally was created to stabilize banks. This is the result of an official EU policy on so called non-performing loans, that was adopted as a response to the global financial crisis.

  • Environment
  • Healthcare

Asbestos is more lethal than previously known. New figures, recognised by the EU institutions, show that 70,000-90,000 Europeans die of asbestos related cancer each year.
