It's worrying… The fundamentals of our democracy are in danger, around the world but also here in Europe. The rule of law is at the core of our democracies. Fairness, equality, accountability are our shield against violations of human rights.

But what do we do when our own government is violating the rule of law?

As citizens can we accept that in the 21st century some EU member states decide to crack down on the freedom of speech, press freedom, women’s rights and so on?

Our answer is NO! We want an EU mechanism to monitor the rule of law in every member state to ensure democracy and fundamental rights are respected. Freedom and democracy are the most precious values for which we will never stop fighting for!
