Coming up this month
In this monthly series, we report what is happening for European Liberals, in Brussels and beyond! Follow us on social...
Last week, the Authorisation Act was adopted in Hungary. The Act goes against the core values of the European Union, including freedom, democracy and the rule of law. In the shadow of the Act, ALDE recognized that liberals all over Europe would want their resistance towards this Act heard. We launched a petition to ask the President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen and the European Council to take action against this.
The petition was sent out through our social media channels and via email to our subscribers on Wednesday 1 April. In no less than 24 hours, we had already received over 1,000 signatures. Today, five days later, the petition has a total of 1,745 signatures.
The multitude of signatures we received shows that liberals want to stand up against the dictatorship that the Authorisation Act will enable. We will do our part in getting your voices heard and will move forward to get the petition on President von der Leyen’s and the Council’s desks.
Thank you for working with us to secure a liberal future where rule of law, freedom, democracy and solidarity rules over dictatorships.
Our petition was created as a activity under our Act! campaign. If you don't already receive Act! emails, you can subscribe here.
Orbán has taken advantage of the COVID-19 pandemic and has established a #CoronaDictatorship which goes against freedom, democracy, solidarity and the rule of law. We ask the @EU_Commission and @EUCouncil to take action. Sign our petition! >> https://t.co/aJRYtz6KKE #ALDEact pic.twitter.com/j64P6iMLiH— ALDE Party (@ALDEParty) April 1, 2020
