Joint statement by @DiEM_25 & @partiarazem
There is intense pride from everyone involved in this campaign that common sense is beginning to prevail.
Read @a_brexit and others’ appeal in the @guardian - let’s give democracy the time it deserves.
When Julian Assange decided to uncover mass secrets of global war crimes, espionage & dirty corporate deals, he knew he could spend his life in prison, victim of made-up lies about his persona, his well-being torn apart. All that has come true—@DiEM_25: https://internal.diem25.org/petitions/1
We will shake the European elections. It will be epic. It will be fun. We will make history. Join @DiEM_25 today. Wherever you are! The battle for democracy in Europe is a global issue. The “nationalist” international cannot expand.
