Petition against Barroso’s job at Goldman Sachs reaches 80,000 signatures

A petition launched by European Institutions employees against Barroso’s job at Goldman Sachs reaches around 80,000 signatures.

On the text of the petition, it is possible to read:

Petition, open to all European citizens until end of September 2016, for strong exemplary measures to be taken against José Manuel Barroso, whose behaviour dishonours the European civil service and the European Union as a whole

We are a group of employees of the European Institutions, bound by our duty of confidentiality and professional discretion, who have come together because we are more and more concerned by the European project’s deteriorating image among our families, friends and neighbours as well as the many citizens we encounter all over Europe.
