Please join us for our weekly Q&As where we will update you on the state of NOW!, discuss key events and moments of mobilisation coming up, talk about some world news, and answer all your questions.
This is always a great moment to get to know the people behind NOW! better, and get introduced to the global movement seeking to solve the biggest challenges of our times (yeah we know, just that ;) ).
From Myanmar to Hong Kong, from Venezuela to Russia, authoritarian leaders are cracking down on democracy and rights. No country alone has the leverage to oppose dictatorships and protect freedom. It’s time to dream bigger, it’s time for a “League of Democracies”: a coalition of major democracies working together to support freedom fighters, and ultimately safeguard freedoms and democracy.
For eight months, we have been working towards this idea, by organizing Fridays For Freedom protests in over 20 countries and by pushing politicians to take action! For eight months, protesters have shown up every week to ask world leaders to protect democracy and freedom fighters.
And now, we need you.
Three months from now, the biggest democratic powers on the planet will be meeting in the United Kingdom, at the G7 2021 summit. We are pushing them to create a League of Democracies there and then. This is urgent, and this is direly needed: only by standing as one can countries oppose authoritarianism.
To continue our work of mobilizing people and lobbying for freedom, we need your financial support!
