Democracy under Attack - A call for Action

26 November 2018

Democracies all over Europe are under threat by a rise of hate, divisive and socially and environmentally destructive political forces.

Alarmed by this, an alliance of cross-sector NGOs, including Friends of the Earth Europe decided to call on the European Union and European governments to respond to this threat by 1) Upholding the rule of law, 2) Applying zero tolerance for hate speech and cyber-violence and 3) Defending the right for people to campaign for the public interest.
