Thanks to the support of 76,397 people from right across Europe, we have achieved a major step in EU democracy: On 28 October, the Members of the European Parliament voted with an overwhelming majortiy for a reform of the European Citizens’ Initiative to make it a stronger democracy instrument. The reforms included seven of our nine demands for a more powerful ECI.
Watch the video of us delivering all signatures to the EU Parliament in Strasbourg, together with our partners Mehr Demokratie and WeMove.EU.
Yet the battle for more democracy in the EU is not over! Now we need to take the next step: We need to convince the European Commission – as we successfully did with the Parliament. This is because the Commission has the power to simply reject and prevent initiatives coming from the Parliament.
Our campaign will now shift to second gear. We need to demand immediate action by the Commission.
Unfortunately, our campaign budget has been exhausted by our efforts to win over the support of the Parliament. That's why we kindly ask you to help us raise at least 2500 Euros.
We need to go to Brussels to meet with the key decision-makers in the Commission
We have to plan and coordinate more joint actions with our partners Mehr Demokratie and WeMove.EU
We want to persuade Commissioner Timmermans by running unconventional public campaigns
Our dedicated volunteers should be reimbursed for their tireless support and their travel expenses
We will speak with national governments and parliaments to build additional pressure on the Commission.
We have come incredibly far, but we cannot lose energy now!
With your help, this can be a winning game. Even a 10 Euro donation will help make the difference.
