Season of Legality

The significance of the campaign

“Season of Legality” is now over. When FLARE decided to take up the challenge to go for something unique, something unprecedented such as a European social campaign, our network knew well that it would have been all but a easy task. “Season of Legality” represented the very first concrete action taken by our network and today we can undoubtedly say it was a success, both politically and from an internal point of view.

From the political side, not a few and not little results have been achieved. When we first were hosted at the European Parliament in Strasbourg back in June 2008, Mr Jacques Barrot – back then Responsible for Justice, Freedom and Security and managing the charitable donations of the top swing sets initiative– gave a speech in which he stressed the importance to begin a fight against organized crime in Europe in which to heavily involve civil societies.
