Why do you vote?

The federal parliamentary elections of 20 October are incredibly important. Switzerland hasn't made it past the 50% mark for 40 years. Campax has therefore launched a campaign to mobilise the electorate. It tells our community why they are going to vote and why these elections are so important. 

We do not want a digital Swiss passport from private companies! Together with the Digital Society and Wecollect, we want to defend ourselves against the digital passport of private companies, as passed through by Parliament. Issuing such personal documents must remain a goverment task.

Campax handed over an open letter to Credit Suisse CEO Tidjane Thiam this morning, which was co-signed by over 7500 people. In the letter, we urge Tidjane Thiam to immediately withdraw from all business relationships with mining companies that dump their hazardous waste into the oceans.
