We defend a society where every person has the right to speak up.
Where people in power are accountable and transparent. With politicians who defend the public interest and refuse to be bought off.
We fight for a true democracy where the public and the media are able to control those in power.

We have defended democracy by:

  • Controlling the influence of lobbyists
  • Getting legislation to protect whistleblowers from retaliation
  • Pushing to end conflicts of interest and corruption in EU decision-making and spending
  • Defending investigative journalism and fighting for freedom of information

And we are still pushing for more:

  • Media freedom and pluralism across Europe, and safe conditions for journalists
  • An independent EU agency to root out unethical behaviour in the European institutions
  • More transparency on how national governments make decisions in Brussels and on MEP spending
