Across the world, democracy is in decline. From authoritarian regimes cracking down on freedoms and rights in Hong Kong, to dictators preventing free elections in Venezuela and Belarus, the situation is deteriorating fast. No country alone has the leverage to oppose dictatorships and protect freedom. it’s time to dream bigger. 

For democracy to be won, prominent world leaders must work together. That is why NOW!’s ‘Wave of Freedom’ campaign works for the creation of a “League of Democracies”: an international coalition of major democracies to coordinate responses and implement measures - such as economic sanctions - to support freedom fighters, and ultimately safeguard freedoms and democracy.

It will not be easy, but it is necessary. Those that love freedom and democracy, and do not want to see the dark cloud of authoritarianism spreading around the world, must stand together. Yesterday it was Tibet, today is Hong Kong and Belarus, and tomorrow it could be your country’s turn. Only by creating a Wave of Freedom that crosses borders and continents can we safeguard our future.


Join our #FridaysForFreedom by taking a picture of yourself with a sign supporting one democratic struggle (or more!)  in front of a government building to ask your country to act (or in your living room)! Click here for the details.

    Breathing in an air where there is no restriction on thinking, laughing or even crying, we in India want to see the same democratic honk-kong moving forward. Whenever democratic methods are attacked in any country Then 135 crore people of India will stand with freedom and sovereignty.

    Today we are with the people of Hong Kong

    I refuse to watch Hong Kong slip into darkness thanks to the ruthless and heartless minds of mainland china. As of this post, marks another Canada Day without our two Michaels safe and sound at home.

    I am signing this not just because of China’s attack on Hong Kong, but also the impending distrust of our Prime Minister and his government in Ottawa. We will protest Ottawa’s neutrality with China, as we continue to stand with Hong Kong, and also fight for the release of our Two Michaels.

    Happy Canada Day, to my fellow Canadians, and the best of hope to the freedom fighters of Hong Kong on which also is a Dark Day for them.

    Freedom will never die. Not if the rest of the world has it. And we will fight for the day to revive democracy in Hong Kong.
