Self-organized, self-financed: nationwide referendum

We support nationwide referendums on the burning issues of the day – until they are enshrined in law. This results in costs for printing, postage and counting of around 200,000 euros per vote, which we can only cover together.

Be part of crowdfunding for direct democracy!
