If you are European, please sign this new petition calling on European institutions to keep democracy in Europe on track.
The petition, entitled “Hungary: Our common values must be secured by common laws,” has been created by “members and supporters of the democratic movements that fought against the Communist regimes in Central and Eastern Europe — fought for our nations to join the community of European democracies. We can never forget the risk of losing basic rights to power-hungry governments.”
We call on European Parliamentarians and Commissioners, on Europe’s governments and parties to build clear standards of compliance with the values of democracy: pluralism, freedom of speech, individual liberties, separation of powers, and independence of justice. The European Institutions should be able to name and shame the transgressors, so that our nations may continue to look to the [European] Union for guidance in their daily struggle to keep freedoms alive.
