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.

    It’s possible that by signing this I, an avid learner of the Chinese language who wants to visit one day, might face punishment by the CCP censorship army if I ever decide to work there and they check my public internet history. China silencing those that dare to speak against it using the Great Firewall and other means of censorship and information control is a powerful deterrent for corporations, organizations, and individuals but it is far too important that democratic societies take a stance. I add my name to this movement out of ideological principal, even when it acts against practical interest. I hope others like me, as people and as groups take a similar stance.

    We must fight back. A teardown of democracy is an existential threat to our humanity.
