Switzerland is set to vote on whether to introduce a basic income for all adults after a grassroots group submitted more than the 100,000 signatures needed to call a referendum. Campaigners are calling for an unconditional income of 2,500 Swiss francs (€2,000/$2,800) per month and illustrated what they see as Switzerland’s cash piles by dumping truckload 8 million five-rappen coins outside the parliament building in Berne. This video by the group behind the campaign, Grundeinkommen, shows activists with the 8 million coins. Credit: Youtube/Grundeinkommen
