European democracy isn't ours to give away

Europe's democracy isn't ours to give away, it belongs to our children and grandchildren. We just borrowed it from those who fought, died and won the democracy that we all lean on.

They gave democracy to us so that we could build on it and make it better and stronger for every generation. This democracy have been challenged many times but never as much as right now, before the European elections and comming member-state elections.

How do we handle this?

I want to see a broad coalition on EU level and on national level against all totalitarianism, rasism and division. At the same time all of us who sees the threat must reach out to those who don't and show the strength of democracy in action. We must use all democratic weapons we have to fight the undemocratic forces back.
